Chez Taylor - Composer

Chez Taylor

Chez is a fast-rising contemporary composer of art and film music. She wanted a personal website to act as her portfolio of compositions, as well as to give updates on works in progress, news etc. The site is very lightweight and simple, built in HTML5, CSS and the YUI3 Javascript framework. The portfolio page features a little 'lightbox'-style widget that overlays a container to stream videos directly from YouTube, and audio from SoundCloud.

Also, just for fun, the polaroid photos on the homepage have a little easter-egg hack built in! There is a transparent HTML5 <canvas> above the images, which uses some Javascript to track mouse movements and effectively 'posterize' the image directly below the mouse pointer (you'll need a good browser to see it)!
