Berlin-based art director Vishal Shah‘s Vellum, is a 3D moving sound sculpture that was recently reviewed by DJ Pagburn at the Creator’s Project.There he describes the work: “The source of Vellum’s sound is the improvised, drone-like double bass play of Eduardo Rodriguez. 3D specialist and technician Rob Rauchfuss and 3D artist and compositor Peter Kienetz turned Benjamin Alejandro’s recording of Rodriguez’s double bass drones into 3D animations. With some clever editing, Vellum becomes a mesmerizing work to see and hear.”
