The Soak of the Year

When you look annoyed all the time people think you're busy.

Epileptic Awesome

I love musical visualizations.  You know, those computer-generated animations where you can actually see the music?
Without going all Pink Floyd on you, it’s rare to find choreographed videos that sync up perfectly with the music behind them.  Automatic visualizers are a dime a dozen (iTunes, Windows Media Player, Winamp, etc.), but great, spot-on videos are still hard to come by.
Don’t get me wrong, automatic visualizers are still pretty cool with the right settings, but the animations below make them seem cheap in comparison.

So, put on some headphones, turn it up and enjoy!


Autechre – Gantz Graf

Venetian Snares – Szamár Madár

The Firmament: Constellation (Ion The Prize)
This final one is awesomely nerdy.  Not really abstract, but it’s too funny to pass up.  I saw some Animusic stuff at a hotel while staying in Vegas, and it blew me away.
Animusic – Starship Groove

Still here?  Do you want to see people do this sort of thing instead of inanimate objects and oscilloscopes?  Check these guys and gals out.

    It’s not exactly the same thing, but this post made me think of this video for the Battles song “Tonto”.

    always loved this one from that Chemical Brothers cut.

      did some research on that Chemical Brothers vid. it’s a Michel Gondry jaunt so it makes perfect sense that it’s formidable.

        Awesome! Never seen it before. Would’ve been a great addition to Speed (IMAX) as a first-person’s point of view on a speeding train. Also, much trippier.
