This piece is an abstract interpretation of UZ’s track ‘Focus,’ which carries a light-weight, ethereal energy that transports one to the heavens. The animation focuses on isolating different elements of the track to allow the listener and viewer to pick up on the complexities and richness of the music. The abstract nature of using simple shapes allows the viewer to remove themselves from the world and focus entirely on the music through the use of light, material, and color.
