Experimental filmmaker/animator and label head, Adam Rodgers, debuts a new project on NOWNESS; multicoloured rippled waves flowing in sync with a heavy electronic soundtrack. The longtime Warp Records collaborator has, in the past, created videos and online experiences for artists like Boards of Canada and Flying Lotus as well as producing a 12-hour, online installation for Brian Eno under his production name, Studio Remote. Rodgers’ latest work, Data Waterfall, is a psychedelic wave of sound-reactive colour, moving to the thumping percussion of a soundtrack by Hudson Mohawke. This beat is taken from Warp’s online game, Butterstar Galactica, a collaboration with artist Thomas Traum and creative coder Mike Tucker. Rodgers explains the short film as such: “Data Waterfall represents an element of nature by using digital methods. I love the idea of elements like clouds being commandeered for use in a digital context, and this film is intended as an extension of that expression.”
