The amazing TED conference has been slowly releasing videos from their last event, which took place a little over a year ago in March of 2007. One of their recently released videos is of Jakob Trollbäck (of Trollbäck + Company) presenting a collaborative project he undertook with Brian Eno for the occasion of the TED conference.
“Moonlight in Glory” goes back to the earliest experiments in animation and filmmaking from pioneers like Oskar Fischinger and Len Lye. Abstract forms and minimal type are presented as visual music. The images are not illustrations of a lyrical theme or even a reflection of the song’s mood; rather, they are sound made visible.
