They Yellow Trotter’s Flight


Przewalski’s horse (pronounced / sh’e-val-skee.) Known as Equus ferus przewalskii or Dzungarian horse, is a rare and endangered subspecies of wild horse native to the steppes of central Asia, specifically Mongolia. At one time extinct in the wild, it has been reintroduced to its native habitat in Mongolia at the Khustain Nuruu National Park, Takhin Tal Nature Reserve, and Khomiin Tal.

Most “wild” horses today, such as the American Mustang or the Australian Brumby, are actually feral horses descended from domesticated animals that escaped and adapted to life in the wild. In contrast, Przewalski’s horse has never been domesticated and remains a truly wild animal today.  The Przewalski’s horse is considered the only remaining truly wild horse in the world.

This piece revolves around the return of the wild horse from near extinction to a new world after many years of being away from its natural habitat. The present appears as a dream as it struggles to replace what it knew about this world. And the yellow little horse wants to fly again through the high steppes of Asia, despite the modern world.

The background music is very particular and native to this area which includes “throat singing” by Huun Huur Tu. Throat singing is a form of vocalization in which the singer manipulates multiple notes at once — the resonances (or formants) created as air travels from the lungs through the vocal folds and out of the lips to produce a melody.

A whimsical look at NYC from some choice angles and locations. The theme revolves around dreams by park “sleepers” and their fantasies.

Special thanks to Ed Yourdon at http://www.flickr.com/photos/yourdon/  for some unusual photographs of the city and its people. Some time lapses are from stock footage. Others are pseudo time lapses, some are real 🙂

Enjoy the show,

Autumn golden mist


When the struggle for supremacy between Winter and Autumn – night and day begins to unfold, we can witness amazing events, light, darkness, cold, fog, mist and colors. These are observations beginning with early twilight prior to sunrise and continuing as the day progresses, offering us the richness and beauty of the season.
I hope you’re having a peaceful Autumn, and are getting ready for the Winter.

My thanksgiving wishes to all, for a beautiful season,

Leo

Plasma nightmare


Let the images tell the tale… This piece is left to your imagination = interpretation.

Music: Metamorphosis 4 – Composer Philip Glass – Played by Branka Parlic

Photography: Bob Merco :: http://www.flickr.com/photos/bobmerco/ ; Leo Bar :: http://www.flickr.com/photos/leobar-pixinmotion/

A very different and difficult piece to produce. It contains at times 6-7 video tracks plus 2 audio tracks. Time consuming and took forever to render once all the clips were in place. I tried to give it a grainy, dreamy look, used a lot of diffusion, coloring with blue and orange when appropriate. This piece contains segments using blue screen (chroma key) and superimposition of composites.

Hope you enjoy (?) this nightmare and if not, at least enjoy the beautiful piano composition and playing.
