  • not sure how i feel about this video to be honest – i am more into the idea of the mobile app that Kate Moross designed for Simian that displays moire patterns that you can manipulate while you listen to the album

    I feel like they just didn’t take the idea for the video far enough to be visually and/or mentally entertaining.

    • and i feel like they already had a video with a really similar idea, no?

      • Dalton

        That would have to be one of my favorites too. And, after seeing through their youtube channel I’d definitely say that they’re trying to emulate some form of synesthesia. Which at least conceptually makes this video more interesting.
