The drone sound field washes up against visuals which evoke streams of light falling across a series of panes. Sound data slowly illuminates and transforms the panes over time, creating a meditative respite for viewers. The composition is inspired by op art practitioners such as Julio Le Parc. Texturally, it draws from old film and digital noise. The piece can adapt to portrait and landscape aspect ratios.
