Legato and Avant La Nuit are two exquisite interactive pieces by Nicolas Clauss, a "painter who stopped 'traditional painting' to use multimedia and the internet as a canvas", working from his Flying Puppet studio in Paris. [ Requires Shockwave. Use your mouse.]

Beautiful indeed, I especially like Legato. Short, intriguing, beautiful and a bit fun. Thanks Migual.

Ooh, and there are more lovely projects here, like this one. Nice way to pass some time otherwise better spent working.

This is the most compelling use of technology for art I've seen. Thanks for sharing this. Also, I think Legato is not quite as short as kokogiak supposed. I haven't figured it all out yet, but the leaves and the pizzicato bass lines seem to clear text in the sand, though it's slow going. That's probably a worthwhile challenge, especially in this medium.

Beautiful work - reminds me of the Real World CD ROM Ceremony of Innocence, which I absolutely loved... before I upgraded to Windows 2000. It just won't run on this platform. Anyone out there found a solution to this problem?

Oh! This is beautiful stuff - Thanks, Miguel!

Do check out Paper Dreams, on this site as well; I wanted it to just keep going on, and on, and on...

Hey Miguel, where'd you hear about Clauss?

(Be sure to observe who was the first commenter in that thread.)

(It's a fabulous site, well deserving of multiple links.)

Miguel, this is a fabulous site - what a wonderful use of music with art. I liked his paintings too. Really neat stuff, thanks.

There are lots of great things on the site - I was particularly smitten by Sorciere.

Avant La Nuit was haunting.

A great site to explore.

Thanks, Miguel!

davebush: i had a similar problem running realworld's eVe after upgrading to w2k. i initially didn't load the quicktime software from the eVe installer, as i assumed my newer version would be better. as it turns out, after reinstalling and accepting the older version of qt, eVe ran like a charm. not sure if that'll help in your case, but i just wanted to mention it.
