DISCOTEQUE is a follow up of MAGIC FLUIDS with a different vibe on a white canvas. In terms of imagery, it was all about execution and adjusting the fluids, not so much about doing research. I wanted very clean colors, pure hues. The fluids made their unicorn thing, however some of them were shifting towards an orange/brownish look overtime. I usually try to avoid “dirty” or in-between values, but this started to look so Retro and 80’s with a bit of image displacement. I browsed music and record covers of that period to match this and experimented with marbling, color formations and shapes to emphasize the vintage feel this piece should trigger.
The song “We were young” from PRIZM is a remake but with a commercial thing I like very much. To me, this is what makes the piece mainstream and experimental at the same time, because I can elaborate in which musical context my visuals work.
