Neues Video von Arthur Stammet - Super Constellations at Consdorf
Super Constellations at Consdorf from Arthur Stammet on Vimeo.
3D fractal animation rendered in September 2012 by Arthur Stammet with Mandelbulb 3D from http://www.fractalforums.com and programmed by user Jesse.
Soundtrack by Paul Kayser.
A flight through an infinitely repeating world with morphing, nested structures. After diving through a chaotic, self similar universe, organized around an infinity of miniature constellations, shrinking down in order to get parts of new constellations, shrinking down in order to get parts of new constellations, shrinking down in order to get parts of new constellations..., we slowly get an overview of its organization : an infinity of circles, containing an infinity of infinitely complex, ornamental structures. Entering and exploring that whole universe finally leads into a highly contemplative, long lasting moment and this last flight of the sublimation of the father of all "Super Constellation" planes leads to the eternity, it deserves.
This movie is an abstract tribute to the first and most beautiful long distance plane.
The soundtrack has been recorded the 19th October 2012 at the Consdorf Church (Luxembourg) during Paul Kayser's concert where he improvized live on the animated pictures.
Zu Arthur Stammet
Born in march 1959 in Luxembourg, Arthur Stammet lives since his childhood in Esch-sur-Alzette. A great part of his actual professional activities stay attached to this town.
After having achieved his master of musicology in Strasbourg, he studied electro-acoustic music in Metz (CNR) and classical singing in Esch-sur-Alzette (with Mireille Kayser-Baltus) and in Brussels, in Jules Bastin's class, finalized by two superior diplomas, both awarded with great distinction : opera singing in 1994 and concert singing in 1996. Actually, he is professor at the music conservatory of Esch-sur-Alzette.
His professional and artistic activities are a mix of teaching, composing, research and singing.
As a singer, his baritone voice sounds in a repertory involving lyrical and dramatic roles, besides religious works, songs and also negro spirituals, musical songs and operetta arias.
First secretary of the LGNM during the 1980ies and actually foundation member of the Noise Watchers Unlimited society, he stays highly interested in the domain of contemporary music and research, working as programmer, lecturer, teacher, composer and video-art-director.
During 21 years, he directed the Howald Church Choir, followed, since 1998, by the Arthur's-Round-Group, specialized in the repertory of negro spirituals and, since September 2005, by the "Ensemble vocal" of his conservatory.
