Tornado Dance

Tornado Dance is an audio visual film created in collaboration with @astralindustries label owner and DJ Ario, for the Waking Life 2020 festival.

This audio visual experience explores the state of trance, visually and through music. How can one be induced into a state of trance, and what function do the music and visuals play?

The name Tornado Dance is a nod to the short story ‘Pink’ by Tomoyuki Hoshino. In ‘Pink’, reality melts during a heatwave, and it does so in four dimensions: not only the physical landscape but also time itself warps in the course of the story, which felt fitting to this project.
