"Primordial Lines" in full
Each Line One Breath is a video about artist John Franzen filmed by Tian Ji and commissioned by Parkview Art Hong Kong. My composition titled 'Primordial Lines' is inspired by Franzen's ability to complement his distinctive drawing method with an appeal to deep philosophical ideas. My intention is for the turn of each chord to portray the inhaling and exhaling of Franzen's lines, whilst allowing the harmonic journey to capture the energy and dynamism with each breath.
