Ned - Esp

2015
Materials and setups vary  
duration 114 minutes 

Ned - Esp is a translation of a soccermatch (from the world championships 2014) into musical data (MIDI). 

The sound of players kicking the ball and the sound of the ball bouncing on the ground is replaced by various samples of a kickdrum.  
The sound of the cheering supporters is translated into a synthesized choir. It is first isolated from the audio-channel of the footage, then pitch-analysed and transformed into midi-data. This midi data is then played through a virtual instrument which emulates a symphonic choir.  
The video channel is being processed through a chain of color-effects. Green is keyed out. Every color left has been changed to either black or white.
