David Hume - Antares
David Hume's Antares is an audiovisual project. This statement means that in this project, music and the vison are one, there is one message, expressed by that specific way, which allows to affect most of human senses. Music, as well as substantive (ideal) content of David Hume manifest themselves in visual range by the graphic form as well as motion. There is specific range of movements, colors and shapes which can essentially express musical vibrations, timbres and frequencies or even meanings and methapores. David Hume project derives from eurasian tradition of hermetics and alchemy. In the name of this statement, which we read out as universal metaphor itself, visuals can be treated as something which is expression of external (in this case - music) as well as metaphor carrier (substantive content of David Hume projetct) .

In its musical plane it is based upon the sounds of modern additive digital synthesizer, exploring the borders of its sound as being used in latest trends and genres of music, but setting them in a completely different context. The sound, being an injection rather than expression, evokes a temple, penetralia, astral planes, galaxies...

In its whole the project is a realisation of a certain cosmological, philosophical and emotional idea; the very melancholical and introvertical one. It speaks about the unity of micro- nad macrocosm, unity of reality in all its phenomena. The central and starting point of this is human fate, its analogies to this of the universe as a whole. It refers to many texts - in a broadest sense - of culture, poetry, philisophy, to hermetic ideas.

David Hume is:

derubare – visual artist, director, producer, VJ.

The leitmotif of visuals of his own autorship is the relation between audio and video in the view of sound as a integral part (quality) of matter. It's expressed by group of specific motions in the structure of filters which percolates raw footage combined with animation in cyberpunk aestethics.
