Oh wow, this is a treat. The same people behind this experimental drumming video in 2013, Touché Videoproduktion Creative, just released a similar music video featuring a song written and performed by Joachim Müllner. The piece was recorded in 15 different locations and then stitched together only with video editing. All the sounds you hear were recorded on location. Stick with it even after the 1:00 mark, it gets more and more amazing. (via Vimeo Staff Picks)
Here’s a fun new music video for ‘Quack Fat’ by Australia-based DJ Opiuo off his new album Meraki. The video was directed and animated by Jonathan Chong of Dropbear who set 240 audio cassettes, 5,600 feet of video tape, 108 floppy discs and 1 retro walkman in motion to create everything you see here. Catchy tune. (via swissmiss)
In this new music video for Son Lux‘s “Change Is Everything,” a montage of singing faces and geometric forms is set in motion with hundreds of pins and rubberized thread moved across the surface of foam boards. The clip was created by The Made Shop who used a mixture of rotoscoping and stop motion to bring Son Lux’s new track to life through 4,000 frames over a period of three weeks. In this making of clip, director Nathan Johnson details the arduous and surprisingly painful process of moving pins thousands of times. (via Quipsologies, NPR)
Please take a moment to put on some headphones, switch to full-screen view, and be transported by this beautifully animated music video created by 23-year-old animator Balázs Simon for Nils Fram’s ‘Re’ off his recent album Screws. This came out earlier this summer, apologies for missing it until now.
With a host of audio-based science experiments from sine waves blasting through streams of water, to visualizations of audio frequencies using sand, and sound waves traveling through flammable gas, this new video by Nigel Stanford has it all. Titled Cymatics, the music video was created for the first single from his new album, Solar Echoes. If you want to learn more about the science, there’s plenty of behind-the-scenes footage with explanation behind each experiment on his Vimeo channel. (via Vimeo Staff Picks)
Only four months after their music video for the “The Writing’s on the Wall” filled with optical illusions, OK Go are back with yet another meticulously choreographed dance video for “I Won’t Let You Down.” Filmed in Japan, this new clip features more than a few umbrellas, Honda UNI-CUB personal vehicles (a kind of tiny robo scooter), and a cast of hundreds. Make sure to stick around for the final shot, hard to believe it’s even real, but knowing OK Go, it certainly is.
In this superbly edited new music video for Roy Kafri’s ‘Mayokero,’ famous album covers including photos of Madonna, the Beatles, Michael Jackson, and Bob Dylan seemingly come to life and begin singing. The project is a collaboration between Roy Kafri and artist Vania Heymann who wrote and directed.
