Blow Your Mind Music Video in Advanced Beauty

If you’re looking for some delirious eye-candy to take your mind somewhere else, check out a site called cololourlovers.com Right now they’ve got a series of 18 computer paintings with original, mostly electronica music in a series called Advanced Beauty. This is some very advanced graphics, synchronized to music. Here’s the blurb from their site.

Advanced Beauty is an ongoing collaboration between programmers, artists, musicians, animators and architects to create audio-reactive ‘video sound sculptures’ using the visual programming language Processing, high-end audio analysis and fluid dynamic simulations alongside intuitive responses in traditional cell animation.

For the lay-persons among us, that means it will blow your mind. Here’s one of them

Advanced Beauty 6 of 18 / Directed by Robert Hodgin from Universal Everything on Vimeo.

For the full effect, note the navigation matrix at the bottom right of each screen. If you click it, it blows the image up to full screen size.

Thanks to Kris on the ResonanceReviews list for this pointer. A great place to find out about leading edge electronic music. You can also read an article called Visual Music on the Echoes site.

    He is amazing!! Coincidentally, we started collaborating and performed together for the first time two days ago! I did my looping
    cello thing while his visualizations reacted, live, to the music.

    Here is some video of it on Youtube. Not high quality alas, so you can’t
    really see how lush and 3D the graphics are.

    Anyway, thought you might find it interesting:
