MAZE & LINDHOLM 'WHERE THE WOLF HAS BEEN SEEN ' - VIDEO BY STEFAN RUBBER
Seeking a visual interpretation for their recent album 'Where The Wolf Has Been Seen', P. Maze and Otto Lindholm sought out Belgian visual artist and algorist Stefan Rubber. We think the results are exquisite.
Rubber is an applied sciences engineer with a background in signal processing and the creation of artificial neural networks. His realizations are mostly based on minimal geometric visuals in 3D, each of which is generated in real-time based on various interpretations of the sound. Working with Maze & LIndholm, Rubber has created algorithms to design a 3D digital mandala, constantly transforming, guiding the listener deep into the music as they penetrate complex, shifting architectures. Technological abstractions work as analogy to the archetype of the wolf, both as a symbol of fascination and terror. It establishes a dialectic between the inside and the outside, a bridge between introspection and contemplation. An aesthetically inviting result that induces a sense of danger, the origins of which defy identification.
As with the cover photography for the album, by Solal Israel, the video says as much about the spaces, the openings between the textures, as the actual tones themselves. The shifting, constantly morphing shapes summon an awareness of the microscopic, diving down into the DNA, examining the traces of spoor, the evidence left behind. The final conclusion is a macroscopic view of the land and wolf combined, something of the essence, the loss.
For best results, as with the audio itself, we recommend total immersion: high volume & darkness.
