Recently, I came across the work of Aurora Gasull, who draws on a range of multimedia to produce visual art. Gasull has been exploring abstraction using music, an example of which is Un Sourire (A Smile), the animation I've embedded below. This beautiful film is set to the music of French composer Olivier Messiaen (1908-1992).
According to her biography on her Website, Gasull currently is creating "a series of animations that act as portraits in a traditional style".
