Staring Into The Snow Preview

This is an ambient abstract piece about losing yourself in the holiday season.

I started by videotaping the footage during my family-focused trip to Minnesota. Once home, I cut the video up into the best bits, transcoded to 640×480 MJPEG clips, and loaded them all up into Grid Pro. From there, I experimented with FX chains and outputted all sorts of clips. I then started composing the music in Ableton Live, and took about a week going back and forth between arranging the music and combining my Grid Pro renders to create the flow of the piece. The assembly was done in Final Cut.

You can download the full version from Archive.org – Staring Into The Snow (direct link – 213MB Quicktime Movie).
