Sync "is based on the idea that there is an underlying unchanging synchronisation at the centre of everything; a sync that was decided at the very beginning of time. Everything follows from it, everything is ruled by it: all time, all physics, all life. And all animation." (Max Hattler, 2011, 'Sync: Circular Adventures in Animation' in Virginie Selavy (ed.) The End: An Electric Sheep Anthology - strangeattractor.co.uk/books/the-end/)
A fractal animation made using a variety of different circle inversion properties. Animation and sound design by Howard Quin.
The animation alludes to how impulses in the central nervous system travel from dendrites to neurons, then travel down axons to next neurons in the human brain.
Exile's "Population Control" is a trippy, mind-bending video scored by Samyiam, Dibiase and Free The Robots who all remixed the same track featured on 'AM/FM.' Inspired by Exile's "We Are All In Power" video, visual artist Greg "The Dude" Ponstingl created the video using thousands of still images and striking visual effects to make a boombox literally come to life. The result is a rather trippy experience, and if you are prone to seizures, look away.
When I first watched "We are all in Power," I was blown away. A year later, I was able to meet with Ex and start working on this video. This project gave me the chance to be experimental and work differently. Using 3 songs in one video was something that intrigued me because, in my opinion, the traditional "music video" is a way of the past. We need visual artists to think outside the box and re-invent the "music video."
trippy fractal loops computed as a backdrop for my electronic live-act back in the days.
original is super fluid at 50 fps but was subsampled to fit the current 1Gb upload limit so you could get a glimpse of the lightshow.
enjoy the visual stimulation set along some fine trance music from http://www.tomcosm.com
