Following a series of abstract photos called Light on Water, I made this short film to bring together abstract moving images and music. This version of Light on Water is a capture of a moment and place in time, as I floated in my kayak in the Atlantic near Rockport, Maine.

For the soundtrack, inspired by Brian Eno’s work with tape loops, I created a system for generative music using a guitar and effects pedals. Once the system is set in motion, the notes repeat and evolve, ebb and flow, as they cascade and oscillate. The music is ephemeral: the loops used to create it were erased after this recording.

Directed by Dominic Cordisco (USA)
