David Moraton was born with a perceptual condition called synaesthesia that allows him to see colours while hearing sounds and music. This has deeply influenced his work. During the last
years, he has created video animations that reflect visually what he hears, mostly Contemporary Classical music pieces or sounds of Nature. The last one "Visus Sonitus I" , based on the "Concert
for Birds and Orchestra" by acclaimed composer Einojuhani Rautavaara, was finalist of Lumen Prize 2015.
His artistic concept goes beyond mental categories, to access an augmented state of consciousness where opposite concepts and perceptions blend. Each of his works is conceived then to raise a
global sense of empathy and awareness, not only with the pure sensations that live in the here and now, but also, at a deeper level, with the mysterious and fascinating forces of Nature in
constant motion and quest for balance.
Moraton is also a lecturer and a professional in the film industry and works as Senior FX Technical Director, creating visual effects for movies such as Man of Steel, Rush, Thor: the Dark World,
John Carter, Total Recall, Jupiter Ascending, Exodus or Avatar
