AVE variation #7

"AVE variation #7 is a personal interpretation of the Spanish landscape filmed aboard the high-speed train AVE (Alta Velocidad Español) between Madrid and Barcelona. It is an assemblage of abstract forms and sounds representing my interpretation of the beauty of the passing landscape from the perspective of a passenger on a speeding train.
Using digital effects, I created a metaphor of a train journey through time and space. The abstract patterns, colors and sounds inherent in this passing landscape produce a wide variety of audio effects and beautiful images.
