The Devil's Golden Temptation Planet - Fractal Animation

607 views 1 month ago
This fractal animation has been created by Arthur Stammet in May 2014 for the Fractalforums.com Digital Art Competition 2014.

This video describes a rather dangerous world, where nothing is really how it appears to its visitor, attracted by a golden surface which risks to turn at any moment into poison or a beautiful, psychedelic landscape. Nothing at all, to trust in. It's the Devil's fractal planet: totally unstable, stressing and fascinating. The best thing to do is to avoid landing on it. Stay away and don't try to contemplate any of the illusions it generates: you won't get the time for it!

The footage has been realized from scratch with Mandelbulb 3D, Jesse's genial fractal renderer from http://www.fractalforums.com and Eric Wenger's ArtMatic (http://uisoftware.com/artma...) and the soundtrack has been composed by Arthur Stammet, improvising on his iPad exclusively with the Waldorf Nave App. Some video effects like Motion blur, light rays, green night view... have been added in Premiere with the ProDad Vitascene Plugin.

These movies are the results of Arthur Stammet's collaboration with the organist Paul Kayser.

Born in Luxembourg in 1979, Paul Kayser began studying violon and solfège in 1986 and organ in 1989 (class of Pierre Nimax jr.) at the National Conservatory of Music at Luxembourg-City. He later added piano (P. Alzin), organ improvisation (A. Wirth), gregorian chant (P. Nimax jr.), choir master (P. Cao & P. Nimax jr.), fugue and composition (A. Mullenbach), obtaining here 3 First Prizes (solfège, improvisation, organ-building) and 3 Superior Prizes (organ, harmony, counterpoint).

He continued his studies at the "Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst Frankfurt am Main" (Sacred Music and Concert Formation) in the classes of Martin Lücker and Daniel Roth (organ), Winfried Toll (choir master), Gerd Wachowski (liturgical organ) and Godehard Joppich (gregorian chant). Those studies are being completed at the "University of Arts" in Berlin, where Paul Kayser was admitted in the organ improvisation class of Prof. Wolfgang Seifen.

Beside his studies, Paul Kayser worked also with Jean Boyer, Gillian Weir, Lorenzo Ghielmi, Olivier Latry, Pierre Pincemaille and Thierry Escaich.

Paul Kayser was laureate at the Organ Improvisation Competition of Bad Homburg (Germany) in 2001 and at the "Orgues Sans Frontières" Competition in 2007. In 2002, he conducted the "Praunheimer Kantorei" of Francfort.

He regularly plays solo recitals, so for festivals in Luxemburg, Germany, France, Spain. His interest for chamber music made that he gave concerts with flute, percussion, saxophone, singers and choirs. In 2005, he has played as a soloist with the Philharmonic Orchestra of Luxemburg at the « Festival d'Orgue de Dudelange ». The same year, he was on a concert tour in Japan with the « Pueri Cantores du Conservatoire de Luxembourg »

Grown up at the famous Stahlhuth organ in Dudelange, Paul Kayser is today organist of the church St-Alphonse at Luxembourg-City and of the famous St-Willibrordus-Basilica in Echternach. He is organ, improvisation and harmony teacher at the music schools of Bascharage and Echternach.
