    Saxophonist Quinsin Nachoff has commissioned several filmmakers to interpret songs from Path of Totality, his recent album with the Flux ensemble. The latest is a short film for “Toy Piano Meditation,” created by JiYe Kim.

    Like artist Udo Prinsen, who visualized “Splatter,” Kim elected to focus on nature. She worked with different, overlapping videos of plants, from bees pollinating flowers to sped-up clips of plants blooming. Grainy, monochrome scenes mingle with vividly colored footage, and the result is an engrossing watch.
