Abstract

This paper will discuss the exploration of key musical and visual parameters with the aim of enhancing the appreciation of Abstracted Animation [1] with varying degrees of animacy. A series of animations were created in response to multiple, wordless, sung, close variations of a song. Carefully delineated, visual parameters and a mapping of visual to audio relationships of the animations afforded insights into key audio-visual intersections and suggested future directions.
