Red Bull "Spiritual Jazz"

Cosmograph and Bloom are two experimental visual installations created at The Mill for Red Bull Music Academy's one time event on May 8th 2016 featuring Kamasi Washington, Pharoah Sanders and the Sun Ra Arkestra, three generations of trailblazing jazz artists for "A Night of Spiritual Jazz.” teams at The Mill collaborated to create custom software used to run cosmograph and bloom - two dynamically driven projections allowing for visual improvisation with the artists the night of the event.

 

Starting with design, we created a graphic language for “Cosmograph” that was based on sacred geometry references - serving as a visual guide for the dev team as they started the build in-house.

Mill artists improvised along with the band by creating swirling, pulsating, color forms built from inks, alcohol and oils squeezed between clock glass, finally being further manipulated digitally.
