Boring music, brilliantly visualized

It's a pleasure to start your week off with what has been an exceeding broad array of music. In this case, it's the visual element that elevates this video to Mondays at BibChr status.

I wish I could enjoy the (boooring, hey-look-that-paint-is-really-drying) music as much as I appreciate the novelty of the visualization. But in this case, what you see is worth enduring what you hear:

Now someone just needs to wed the concept with an interesting song!

If you think that is interesting you should check out the Chemical Brother's - Star Guitar video, similar concept only doing in a much more interesting fashion (you may like the song a bit more, who knows)

Breathtaking visuals. The song's pretty but pretty also tends to be boring in art. I could imagine this song being in the background of a particularly sappy scene in a saccharine romance movie.

I dunno... I kind of liked the music

DJP said...

Witness - well then, for you it was a win/win, eh?

Watch three times and skip your nightly dose of Ambien.

Hmm. I liked the music but found the visuals off-putting. Is that some kind of worm--maybe a parasite--- eliminating multi-coloured (probably toxic) waste?

I think I have either not enough of an imagination or too much of one...at any rate, to each his or her own!

... yeah, but can they do that in a Brandenburg Concerto Number Two?

CR said...

I liked the music and the visual.

P.D. Nelson said...

Liked the visuals nice bit of work there. Your right Dan the music is boring almost as bad as CCM.

Susan said...

Jack, I just tried your idea. I played Dan's video without the sound and then opened another tab to link to a YouTube clip of Brandenburg Concerto #2 (first mvmt.). Not too bad! (The Brandenburg Concerto mvmt., however, is longer by over a minute.)

JackW said...

Susan, good for you for trying, I'm thinking you need a lot more smoke and mirrors to tackle a Brandenburg Concerto, especially when you get to the brass section.

I couldn't handle the music long enough to appreciate the visuals...they looked promising but, as I say, the music...wasn't.

DJP said...

Justin Taylor would love the music.

Mark Patton said...

Maybe Frank could plug in some rap music.

Susan said...

Agreed, Jack--especially when the solo trumpet flourishes on the high notes, IMHO.
