Don ZanFagna: INFRA/ULTRA
Directed by Christopher Hanson and Aaron Neu
Original Soundtrack: Bill Carson
Executive Producer: Mark Sloan
Don ZanFagna’s notebooks provide an intimate look into the artist’s mind. Because the notebooks are somewhat fragile, they could not be handled by the general public. Instead, we commissioned videographers Christopher Hanson and Aaron Neu to provide a “fly-through” of ZanFagna’s notebooks in the form of a video. An original musical score by Bill Carson accompanies the visuals.
Following ZanFagna’s lead, Bill Carson did research into the Mesoamerican (Mayan) calendar system. He based his musical compositions on the overlapping cycles contained within this calendric system (embedding a 20 note melody over a 13 beat bass line, for example). The result is, predictably, hypnotic.
This video accompanies the exhibition entitled, The Pulse Dome Project: Art & Design by Don ZanFagna.
