Synopsis: Repetition and distortion drive this audiovisual collaboration between composer Lux Prima and visual artist Max Hattler, where fuzzy analogue music and geometric digital animation collide in an electronic feedback loop, spawning arrays of divisional articulations in time and space. http://www.maxhattler.com/divisionalarticulations/

Divisional Articulations is a collaboration between composer Lux Prima and visual artist Max Hattler, and explores audio-visual repetition and distortion. The images represent Hattler’s interpretation of the fuzzy analogue loop-based music created by Lux Prima. Sound and image collide in an electronic feedback loop. Divisional Articulations draws on influences ranging from constructivism and Paul Klee's Bauhaus teachings to computer animation pioneer John Whitney’s seminal film experiment Matrix III (1972). The film was directed by Max Hattler and animated by a team of 16 students at City University of Hong Kong's School of Creative Media. The music was created in Lux Prima’s studio in East London.
