2004-2010This period sets the transition to digital techniques, away from traditional painting.
Adding synaesthetic impressions to David Moraton's art has always been another way to contribute to his augmented concept of a reality were entities of different nature, in this case auditive and visual, blend. The source of these sounds that he visualises could be from Nature or could be from Classical Music, one of his greatest passions (Wagner, Bruckner, Sibelius, Mahler, Rachmaninov. ..)
But specially the discovery of contemporary works like "Cantus Arcticus/Concert for Birds and Orchestra" by Einojuhani Rautavaara made a crucial impact on the evolution of his art. Not only the actual sounds of birds of this concert ignited his mind with colors, but also Rautavaara's music was strangely resonating with his oceanic vision of a vibrating, mystical, unifying Nature. After this experience, Moraton became obsessed with visualising sounds, music, specially this music
So far his oils on canvas attempts to represent sounds were limited by the static nature of the painting media. There was no true representation of the real evolution of the music or the sound, no trace of the present moment, of what's sounding right now, so he had to introduce the time factor with a different media. That's why the artist started to devour video and 3D animation technical knowledge.
