Music and visuals from one of my favorites, beeple. Enjoy!
“On the planet Zig 5 a life span can last mere minutes, there are vicious predators everywhere, and no one stops to smell the roses because the flowers have legs and run away. This is a strange place located on the edge of known space. The Intergalactic Wildlife Service sends Naturenauts there to document the world in all it’s unruly glory and many are sacrificed in their quest for knowledge and rare vid footage.”
From the wonderfully-weird Fifteen Pound Pink Productions. Enjoy!
NSFW WARNING: There’s nothing especially naughty about this video, but I imagine your boss would frown on you watching anything with large towers comprised only of breasts while on the clock.
This animated short from Clement Picon, Amael Isnard and Manuel Javelle is infectious, high-energy and contains heaping doses of bizarre. Resistance is futile. Just let go.
Master Iller took some visuals from René Laloux and Roland Topor’s 1973 Cannes Film Festival special jury prize winning trip-fest, La Planète Sauvage and set it to Yes‘s epic 1971 psychedelic rambler Starship Tropper. It’s vintage good times, folks!
This bizarre wonderland of trippy visuals for ‘Put It Back Down’ by Seymour Bits was conceived and directed by Michiel ten Horn and Maarten J. Berkers. Lights down, sound up, trip-out. Enjoy!
“You may not believe, but even we were scared at first.
It takes a lot of nerve to destroy this wondrous earth.
We’re only human; this at least we’ve learned.”
French animation house, Mathematic, created this music video about the whimsical, peaceful, rambling journey of a black dot for two of their fellow countrymen, Nicolas Godin and Jean-Benoît Dunckel a.k.a. Air. Ingesting this healthy dose of happy tunes and gorgeous high-definition visuals is an all-around great way to start your week. Enjoy!
A good friend, Dev, sent me this video over Facebook and I knew, after only watching it for thirty seconds, that it’d be perfect right here on The Tripatorium™. It’s three-and-a-half minutes of good times.

Codehunters was broadcast as both a standalone short film and as branding for the MTV Asia Music Video Awards by Ben Hibon and super-talented crew over at Axis Animation. It’s one of my all-time favorite animated shorts and won the Golden Nica for Computer Animation/Visual Effects in 2007. Enjoy!
“A short abstract movie dealing with nature and maritime creatures, metamorphosis and transformation – it connects art and science. Strong emphasis on sound, related to the idea of visual music.”
Silke Sieler, a German ‘motion graphics designer’, created this video as his diploma thesis for his studies in media design at the University of Applied Sciences in Mainz. I sure hope he got top marks because it’s really, really good. Music by Apparat.
Another stunner from french school of awesome, Gobélins. This tale about growing up, love and loss of innocence was lovingly crafted, completely without dialogue in a beautiful watercolor aesthetic, by De Nicolas Athane, Brice Chevillard, Alexis Liddell, Françoise Losito and Mai Nguyen with sound design by Vincent Hazard and music from Pablo Pico. It’s gorgeous, gorgeous, GORGEOUS stuff – CHEERS!
The Tripatorium™ loves birds, music videos and electronic music so we’re quite thankful that Kristof Luyckx and Michèle Vanparys put this video together – it’s almost like they made it especially for us. Plus, it’s about a finch who eats a seed and starts tripping out…bonus! Top-flight tunes by Hermanos Inglesos with vocals from MeMe.
WeAreSeventeen put this animation together as, “a series of moving sculptures that take inspiration from the great surrealists like dali…These objects are mechanical but at the same time organic in their movements. They are a collection of textures, objects and movements that create images that we wanted to see…more” I’m diggin’ it.
Tom Beddard, a.k.a. subBlue, brings the fractal goodness and for this, we are thankful. He’s currently, “working on a WebGL 3D fractal renderer that will let you explore structures like this in real time.” Sweet.
“Brutal and unforgiving – the Arctic Circle – where all that grows in abundance is….temptation.”
A cautionary tale told in stop-motion animation by talented young filmmaker Kevin Parry with music from Ihor Dawidiuk. And, hey, Tim Burton loved it (he said, “it’s like a cross between 2001 and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”) so you probably will too, no? Great work, Kevin, can’t wait to see what you create next!
Kristofer Ström, of Baltimore Clap fame, created this video on a whiteboard (no undo/redo!) for Swedish house-outfit Minilogue‘s 2006 Hitchhiker’s Choice EP. It’s trippy, strange and a blast to watch…I just wish it was in HD. Well done, Kris!
A big thanks to ‘that_fisher_kid’ for sending it in...CHEERS!
“Love, electricity, shockwave central pummel on the motherboard, yes. Push up, overload, legendary heavy glow, sunshine, thunder roll, keep it all together. Yes the lantern burn, burn it easy and broadcast, so raw and neatly; thunder roll, sunshine, work it out-out-out-out-out-out-out-out-out-out-out-out…”
Just another great music video for a Gorillaz tune from Plastic Beach. Directed by Jamie Hewlett with animation duties handled by the always-awesome Passion Pictures. Gotta love the Bruce Willis cameo, too – it’s like the whipped cream and cherry on top of the sundae. Enjoy!
Thanks again, cyriak, who, as always, handled both the audio and video production duties. Filmed on location at the Worthing sea-front with some slight touching-up/post-processing in After Effects. ;)
A regular reader of the site, alex, was kind enough to email us the contents of a personal bookmarks folder he curated named ‘trippy shit man’. This video was included in those links and, let me assure you, he categorized it correctly. My favorite part is definitely the skiing ostriches.
Originally broadcast on January 1st, 2011 between 4:00 and 4:30am (on the reliably awesome [ adult swim ]) Animals is a strange visual journey indeed. Ten points if you spot the Cyriak. You’ll also find Blockhead‘s excellent video for their tune ‘The Music Scene’ in there which was posted here in full HD back in October. So definitely check that out if you haven’t watched it yet.
Thanks again, alex!
