Broken Note - Let Em Hang

I'm (very) excited to share with you the first video I've been commissioned to create:



(IMPORTANT: Play in fullscreen mode)

This is the cumulation of my experiments with algorithmic music videos, generated by AI. Only ~5% of the mixing decisions were made by a human.

Ever since I discovered Broken Note via DJ Intoner, I've been enamored with their sound. Any time I spin Dubstep, Broken Note's tracks are more often than not the climaxes I build up to. Needless to say, I was breathless when they asked me to make a video for them. Fortunately, I had the good sense to nod. Emphatically.

I've made all the source code used to create this video available under the GPLv3, 'cause that's how we do things around here.

For a full write-up of this video (including a link to the source code), please see its Vimeo page.

Note: The version you're viewing is only 30 frames per second, and 720x480... The version Broken Note and I will use for live shows is in a 1920x480 ultrawide 3-projector format, and at 60 frames per second. 60 fps is intense.

so good!

that's some graceful syncing you've been able to produce there.

so precise, and the shapes pair so naturally with the specific sounds..
you have any upcoming shows in SF?

Oh damn, that was pretty neat. Turned off the lights and watched it full screen.
