Evariations is an abstract animation experimenting within the basic parameters of just dots and lines as abstract non-representational imagery that is hand-drawn digitally. The method of 'frame-less' or 'camera-less' animation and frame-by-frame drawing is transposed to digital means to give a handmade aesthetic to the computer animation. The animation is set to an excerpt from "Tiresias' Prophecy" original music composed by Sebastian Castagna, which is a 'song without words' exploring the ways in which vocal sounds produce meaning when the semantic level of the words is removed. Viols, other early-music instruments and electroacoustic soundscapes 'orchestrate' the vocal lines.
