Blue Glass

'Blue Glass' is the interpretation of a studio jam by Irish-American fiddler Eileen Ivers and her band. The visual interpretation focuses on the transition from simple rhythms to the more dynamic percussive events that characterizes the piece's development. Lisa Lehman collaborated with me on the development of the visuals for this piece. One of the things we were doing with it was exploring color. Though we were unaware of the Chromatek 3D glasses while we were developing this piece, many people have commented that they enjoy the subtle depth changes the glasses produce on this piece.
