The Ebb And Flow Of Digital Art And Music

Geographical landscape charts come to mind when first watching the video for Sky To Speak’s new track, Colors and Shapes, designed by 25-year-old, Robert Hruska. The effect the video has on it’s audience is akin to a child watching a lava lamp for the first time, we are transfixed; the shapes and colours sway to the enchanting rhythm of the music and so do we.

Robert is a self-professed, “ecological artist”, he combines separate creations to produce something completely new. “I take one of my old work and transform it into something completely different. I feel like a magician who hides a mystery from the public’s eyes – no one quite knows how I do it”, he explains to us when we enquire about his creative process. “My creative process is mainly hours spent with inspirations and the creation itself – just experimenting”.

The inspiration behind the video? Music. I love music.

A foodie as well as an artist, Robert has a clear talent for digital art yet he believes that “[it] can be done by anybody who has the technology to actually do it”. Digital art is about ideas rather than equipment, expensive software doesn’t necessarily equate to exceptional digital art.

The real art of this video stems from it’s ability to lull us into a trance-like state, one of calm and contemplation, while being visually complex and stimulating. It is experimental, dynamic and a tribute to sound by someone who loves music.
