    Vanish is the fruit of a collaboration between the filmmaker/programmer Daniel Schwarz and musician Davide Cairo. A fascinating journey through surreal landscapes, in which music and video have been composed in parallel, influencing each other in their development. Common materials, such as the abovementioned ice, wood, porcelain, metal, and even balsamic vinegar, simultaneously gave rise to sounds and imagery.

    The music drew inspiration from the sounds made by these elements, and through a huge series of algorithms, transformed them into a range of geometric representations that then formed the basis for the audio-reactive graphics projections. Awarded at the Visual Music Awards 2012.
