In 2008 I started a project about motion in live music performance. My favorite shows have always included high energy from the bands and I wanted to get close and freeze the action.
I used my camera to shoot quick bursts of pictures which were then played at a set pace in Final Cut. It has a choppy effect which allows the mind to fill in the blank from one picture to the next like a flip book.
After two months of shooting like this I narrowed it down to around five hundred pictures and then set to the task of working out the timing. I wanted certain pictures to be seen as the viewer would listen to the music. Drums representative of percussion, guitarists of guitars and so on.
I was extremely pleased with the end result and would like to thank Big Heavy World, Club 242 Main and all the bands involved.
