Giant Steps
– A music animated short film (2:15 minutes) to John Coltrane’s masterpiece.

When I listen to music I see colors and shapes and when I watch visual art I hear sounds.
I wanted to express my sensing of shapes, colors and music in this short animation.

I chose this piece because I’ve struggled to play it for many years and I wanted to gain a deeper understanding of it.
“Giant Steps” was also a major breakthrough in the history of Jazz music.  It was the first time that music
was based on symmetrical patterns, which stemmed from a mathematical division of the musical scale.

I translated Coltrane’s mathematical approach to architecture. His musical theme defines a space and the musical
improvisation is like someone drifting in that imaginary space. {More…}

“Architecture is crystallized music.” –Goethe
