The piece, uploaded in April 2016, beautifully and enigmatically shows how music can be transformed into visuals using imaginative and skilled creative expression.
When watching the video you can see a graph-like structure that reacts to the different pitches of Gregor’s piano playing – rising and falling, creating rippling waves and even mimicking the motions of piano keys. Mark describes it as, “A work-in-progress video of 3D virtual shapes responding to peaks in sound, part coded, part drawn, part generative art,”.
Take 36 seconds for yourself – enjoy the soothing sounds of Gregor’s piano playing and let your eyes get mesmerised by Mark’s Music-Scape Test A.

I Am You.
You look up.
the pen glides across crumbling pages.
– and see silence.
Like an invisible string was drawn taut,
you feel your neck crane towards the skies,
eyes drawn towards the starless night.
You are a marionette.
You hear the pen scratching its way
against smooth paper.
There is something in the sky.
The ink murmurs. The ocean beckons
you to come home.
And as if of their own will, you take a step
In front of you lies the ocean.
You are –
the dark blue water kissing the shore and only if you
could see you would fight back.
the lightning scatters
in the distance like white pen
marks slicing its way across a black canvas.
You are me.
And then silence.
The pen halts in the sky and time topples over.
And now I hold the pen between cold fingers,
scribbling words across paper-thin sand.
I am –
ink in arcs across canvas skies, a glittering line of untold tales.
I – the sunlight sings,
chords like pale cobwebs
I am you.
