All 3D fractal art in this video is by Jeremie Brunet.
This video is in the tradition of thought-provoking ideas for the futurist. It is a music video, but is propelled by a scientific prediction, so it could almost be classified in the Science & Technology section. Regardless, the video is only intended as an artistic rendition of one possible scientific outcome and is not to be taken as the actual scientific prediction in discussion.
"Based on the theory/prediction of the Technological Singularity, introduced by minds like Vernor Vinge and Ray Kurzweil, the entire universe may someday be comprised of nanobots that are controlled by a singular computer-mind of the same magnitude. If this happened, then perhaps what you are about to see is similar to the way planets and other celestial bodies may behave sometime far into the future. Fractal technology brought to life..."
The music for this video is by Surface 10, but it's release date is uncertain. The track title was a last-minute mix up and is in fact not titled "Heart Wrench Cosmos" but is simply named after the video - "The Surface 10 Singularity." You can google the artists' name and stay posted to his website for details.

Producer / musician Dean De Benedictis does his a cappella version of the old jazz standard "As Time Goes By" as an art stunt at Times Square during AM hours. It is performed live, using Live looping (Abbleton), to honor the area for his project Travels Rendered, and was one of the somewhat-disheveled last stops of a difficult project trip. The recording takes place during the NYC trip of 2011, but the song and video are intended as a general New Year's gift.
This sketch is intended as a sentimental, lonely, reflective, noir-like tribute. To achieve this effect visually, Dean put filtering effects on his footage, this particular selection having been filmed in-and-around the Times Square area.
More videos from this project will be posted over the coming year, as well as updates on Dean's approaching trips through the American west.

"I always thought of this piece as being technological, yet fluid and majestic, so it was tricky figuring out how to match it with my existing footage. I ended up montaging clips I'd been reserving for many other music videos and shorts, and even stuck a few extra screen savers in there to match the 'retro electro' part. Most of this footage was taken during my Travels Rendered adventures (which you can find videos of in the video section), but as I said, there are a few extra things including pre-made designs from programs like Electric Sheep and Whitecap. Cheap or not, everything had it's place, and was pretty thought out if nothing else.
Of course, I can't exactly deny a couple of crudeness factors; I even made the thing in my old version of iMovie. Long story." -Dean De Benedictis
