This animated short movie outlines the history of traditional jazz music in a virtual walkthrough of a shadow art museum.

Shadow art is a unique form of sculptural art that exploits the fact that we can recognize objects from their shadows or silhouettes. Improvisation, a key ingredient of jazz music, is mirrored in the ambiguity of a shadow sculpture: many different 3D shapes can cast the same 2D shadow.

The movie highlights five different milestones in the evolution of jazz: the early songs of field workers, ragtime, New Orleans jazz, swing, and bebop. Each era is represented with a room containing 3D sculptures which cast multiple shadow images at the same time. This unique property is achieved using a novel computational method for the interactive creation and manipulation of shadow art. Given a set of desired silhouette images, a global geometric optimization builds a 3D shadow volume that can subsequently be edited by the artist using a set of 3D modeling tools.

The reinterpretation of jazz and non-jazz music is crucial in jazz pieces - in the same way, a shadow object can be seen as a 3D interpretation of the desired 2D shadows.

BRISTOL / ELECTRONIC MUSIC / RESIDENT ADVISOR

A Bristol negli ultimi anni si è sviluppata una scena di artisti che hanno trasformato la città in una delle capitali mondiali della musica elettronica creativa. Questo film della serie Real Scenes (via Residentadvisor magazine) esplora il clima creativo della città.

Bristol ha seen in recent years a development of a "scene" of artists that transformed the city in one of the most influential electronic music outposts in the world today. This film from the Real Scenes serie (via Residentadvisor magazine) explores the city's creative climate.



The eyes of the world have turned to the UK in recent years and have found some of the most exciting, genre-defying young artists to emerge from electronic music. But while London's scene can be fractious and hard to pin down, there seems to be something in the air in Bristol that unites its participants. Whether they're creating dubstep, house, techno or something else entirely, the cross-pollination in Bristol is unique.


Real Scenes is a series of films, supported by and conceived with Bench, in which we explore the musical, cultural and creative climate within electronic music's key destinations. We'll look at the role singular figureheads—producers, DJs, promoters—play in making their city's music scene a point of world-wide interest. We'll also look at places, spaces and inspirations, seeking out the essence of what gives these hyper-local scenes a truly global resonance. 

DETROIT / ELECTRONIC MUSIC / RESIDENT ADVISOR

Non si può parlare di musica elettronica senza menzionare Detroit. Questo film della serie Real Scenes (via Residentadvisor magazine) esplora il clima creativo della città.

You can't talk about electronic music without mentioning Detroit. This film from the Real Scenes serie (via Residentadvisor magazine) explores the city's creative climate.


Detroit. The city's DJs and producers birthed the genre we now call techno. Detroit, however, has always had a creative streak, due in large part to the boom and subsequent bust of the auto industry. Quite simply, Detroit is a city of extremes, and its music reflects that. Detroit's importance in the global electronic music scenes is often referred to in the past tense. With the recent emergence of Kyle Hall and other young Detroit producers, however, it's clear that a spark remains. When we visited, we found a number of artists with their eyes (and ears) firmly set towards the future. After our time there, it's clear that Detroit will endure and innovate for years to come.
