Problems
Floating Points


This Floating Points’ banger is meant to agitate every single room that its ecstatic sound waves reach. We wanted to celebrate it with movement and dance and reshape it through sound, by using techniques that allow the sonification of images. 

Following up with the series created with the previous singles, this new single  “PROBLEMS” navigates the idea of translating soundwaves into light and movement, and how all these parameters intersect with each other in front of the camera.

We used lasers that morphed and moved to the music, and we recorded them with a custom program that let us synchronise the laser refresh rate with the camera shutter speed. Playing with these parameters we could make the laser beams move slowly through the air, and even stop them still, allowing us to create different effects without post-production.

With this technique, we wanted to visually translate the feeling of music and rhythm pouring into you when raving on a dance floor. As Jal and Hannah dance, the light collides with their bodies and creates glimmers like electrical pulses like the irrational ones that make us move.
