Synposis

A human silhouette breaks out of geometric shapes and falls abstractly through air, water and space until colors unfold.

This song was produced by Lisa‑Miriam Uebel ↗MAIRIMASIL released in late 2019.

Approach

In combination with the concise looping melody the animations are telling a story of struggling to break out from vicious cycles of fears. Ever so often there are moments of relief and the feeling of being in control.

↗MAIRIMASILs voice creates a captivating atmosphere emphasized by the grainy backgrounds and transitions in combination with gritty textures.

Looping animations, a figure falling constantly and gritty grain and textures are trying to convey the feeling of losing control and creating a deep atmosphere.

Frame by Frame

The animations are made by using hand drawn cell-animations. Though time consuming – its potential lies in the endless range of movements, creating a very dynamic and fluent experience.
