‘Light Motif’, A ‘Synaesthetic’ Short Film Starring a Monkey in a Brightly Colored Room Full of Bouncing Balls

“Light Motif” is an aesthetically brilliant short film directed by London-based filmmaker Frédéric Bonpapa that offers a “synaesthetic” experience featuring a soundtrack by composer Steve Reich and a largely disinterested monkey surrounded by bouncing balls in a brightly colored room.

The inspiration for the project stems from the relationship between music and the visual arts, illustrated by artists such as Wassily Kandinsky, Oskar Fischinger, Norman McLaren or John Whitney. These works try to establish precise connections between sounds, shapes, colors and movements, to visually translate the concepts of rhythm, melody, harmony, pitch, timbre and intensity.
