Variegated Beat – Loose Concrete
Single Channel Video, 4 min 17 sec
Variegated Beat – Loose Concrete is a visual music piece created in response to a musical composition remixed and composed by Cignol/Sean Reed. Diatribe, the label representing the music, invited McDonnell to create the work. The visuals explore the beats and rhythms of the music soundtrack through the use of multiple colors, “visual beats” that correspond to musical beats. Although the imagery is suggestive and evocative of real things, it was generated solely from one small blue square.
