is it just me or do others not see a connection between the music and the visuals either?

there’s quite bit of shit going on but honestly most often the “less is more” does apply.

putting that much of visual information does not make a great piece but that said i do appreciate the CG work that went into this.


I understand what you are saying, but i think music videos now days are kind of a platform for experiment. This piece made sense to me in the sense that both the music and the video image are synthetic in nature.

Nice! I thought, as a piece, the first one was quite boring. I didn’t get into the mood of it.

This is really cool, the visuals mesh well with the music, and they pull off a fantastic mood.

Strange but absolutely magnetic


My god my brain melted from pure awesomeness.
