It’s time to reconsider the relationship between images and music. The most primitive and unimaginative relationship is that of accompaniment. Music accompanies images (ballet, movies), images accompany music (music videos, etc.). For example, when the music changes, the video changes accordingly, or when the video gets exciting, the music changes as well, and so on. From another context, automatic interactive systems are the ultimate in primitiveness from a perspective of relationship. However, if we completely ignore these relationships, we end up with a chaos of sound and images, which is stronger than any original quality of images or music and thus loses its quality. So what should we do?
I dismantled the established categories of sound and image and wrote a unified score about simple dynamism. Based on this, I transformed scored dynamism into sound on the one hand, and video on the other hand. This score also has temporal dynamism, then it has a climax. This is why we use a well-known technique in the history of directing called accompaniment. In this method, of course, there is still the temptation of narrativeism, and the accompanying climax is a kind of totalism/Wagnerism. But if we try to resist this temptation, we will fall back into chaos, so giving in to this temptation is a necessary sacrifice.
This work is a new inquiry into the synchronous/asynchronous relationship between image and music.
