Jane Cassidy – The Night After I Kicked It

The music and animation were composed simultaneously to create a cohesive, tightly synchronised piece. Each element is of equal importance yet the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. It is an abstract piece – there is no narrative, rather both elements of the composition influence each other to create the structure and movement of the work. Within the animation the use of colour, image placement on screen and the matching of images to sounds is used to create a type of associative synaesthesia.

The piece was originally composed with 11 channels of audio for 10.1, with height surround sound.

More About Jane


Live projection visuals by Jane Cassidy

Jane Cassidy

Jane Cassidy is a Dublin based multi disciplinary artist and educator from Galway. Primarily trained in music composition, Jane earned a Masters in Music and Media Technologies from Trinity College Dublin in 2008. Jane's main interests lie in visual music, live Vjing, electro-acoustic composition and multi-channel work. 

When composing Jane simultaneously develops animation so that there is a very precise correlation between both. The ultimate goal is to create or imply a type of associative synaesthesia wherein both elements are inextricably linked within a minimalist aesthetic.

Experimentation is central to her work, and she is constantly attempting to forge new methods in order to further the visual music experience. Jane aspires to engage the audience with her work as much as possible and to expand the already growing field of visual music.

Chris Flynn - Designer and videographer and animator



Back To Top of Page

Chris Flynn (MMT 2008) work as a freelance designer, mostly doing print-related things but also some web and motion-graphic stuff. He also makes some sort of electronic music as Euphiophone. It has beats but would probably frustrate a dancefloor. I like making noise with guitars and that often ends up in there.  Chris helps organise Second Square To None, a label/promoter/blog group that attempts to provide a forum for more experimental strands of everything from electronica to noise to etc.
