"J.Walt's Spontaneous Fantasia is a new performing art form which utilizes high-tech interactive 3D animation techniques developed for video games, simulation, and virtual reality. Animation artist J.Walt Adamczyk has designed and programmed works of computer animation in which he draws fantastic, ethereal imagery with musical accompaniment live before an audience. The art form combines elements of painting, music, dance, animation, video art, sculpture, and architecture.
“It's great to be exploring new possibilities with this form,” says J.Walt. “With my compositions, I get to incorporate so much that interests me: the joys of gestural drawing, of music, of three-dimensional forms, movement, and of exploring ways of using computer technology.” J.Walt adds that each of his compositions involves improvisation. “All of the pieces have a certain structure and a certain theme, but each piece allows me room to be expressive and try new things. Every time, the show is different.”
J.Walt will perform his live animated illustrations of music by Bach, Satie, Chopin, and Saint-Saens, played by pianist Karenn Chutjian and cellist Abby Scoville. J.Walt will also perform his spiritual Nocturnes and his other-worldly journey to an alternate world Autocosm: Gardens of Thuban."
