Description

N3xt.com is a series of loops, with the emphasis on plain space around objects, exaggerated movements and sound. A beautifully designed and intriguing experimental site to which new elements are added on a monthly basis.

N3xt.com is a series of loops, with the emphasis on plain space around objects, exaggerated movements and sound.
As I learned the value of using repetitious elements and silence, there came a corresponding use in the choice and arrangement of my compositions. Certain schemes begin to produce an idea in the mind when they are seen or heard, some a peaceful image - a most welcome contrast to the feeling of confusion and unrest caused by a crowded life style and a busy mind. Experiments show that an individual has the capacity to enjoy only a limited number of things at one time and that when this amount has been exceeded one actually sees less rather than more.
An object gains importance when it is separated from the things around it- a few frames of a movie take a new life of their own when they are cut from their environment: A new thought is born.
