Facade Manhattan, 2010 + Mendelssohn:Variations sérieuses in D minor Op.54, 1842

With series of consecutive facade shots from 50+ manhattan skyscrapers completed between 2000 and 2010, we try to use the solemnness of the architectural building and variation of the urban texture to analog the theme and structure of the music piece, but with a serious dislocation of time. The rhythm and texture of the video are reactive to both live piano sound and a performer controlling a wireless iPAD in real time.
