A tilted figure, consisting largely of right angles at the beginning, grows by accretion, with the addition of short straight lines and curves which sprout from the existing design. The figure vanishes and the process begins again with a new pattern, each cycle lasting one or two seconds. The complete figures are drawn in a vaguely Art Deco style and could be said to resemble any number of things, an ear, a harp, panpipes, a grand piano with trombones, and so on, only highly stylized. The tone is playful and hypnotic. Written by
Like most musical symphonie's, this Symphonie Diaganale by Vikig Eggerling consists mostly of repetition. Something that appears to be the neon-light scheme of an inexistent machine is drawn and re-drawn in different ways and angles for about 3 minutes. The light seems to slide through the screen and through the eyes of the spectator, that is left only with the oportunity to imagine, in the shapes and in the motion, something like castles in the sand. This is almost like making music with images, something like cinematographic synesthesia. Something that we don't often see, and, for that alone, might be a good reason to try and watch this one. You might want to try to search for it in DC++, slsk, or your favorite P2P program, if you can't find it in your country.
