Chase No Face

“No post-production effects were used in this video. Everything on the face is happening in real-time, via hacked Kinect, laptop and LED projector.”

Diggin’ this rad and inventive work from Zach Lieberman, Francisco Zamorano, Andy Wallace, and Michelle Calabro that is an apt visual accompaniment to the ethereal, chill sounds of BELL. Enjoy!

For a behind-the-scenes look at how this music video came together check out this video that Francisco posted to his Vimeo account.

Shinkansen ver.2

Daihei Shibata – the brilliant mind behind The Light of Life – documented a ride between Shinosaka and Tokyo on the Japanese Shinkansen high-speed train network. After choosing a nice tune from Van She to add some atmosphere Daihei mirrored the footage along the horizontal axis, gave it a thoughtful prune with some well timed edits and voilà: he’s finished. The whole affair is decidedly chill. We approve.

Also on The Tripatorium™: If you dig this then don’t hesitate to click here for another electronic-music soaked train ride courtesy of none-other-than Mr. Michel Gondry himself.

“The idea was to make a visual representation of how art communicates with the viewers emotions, and it was very inspiring to animate other artists work.”

Sven Larsen passed along this minute-and-a-half short film by Lasse Gjertsen – Mr. Hyperactive himself – that takes you on a tour of Bomuldsfabriken Kunsthall in Arendal, Norway. The visuals are subtle, sufficiently trippy and go especially well with the mellow backing tunes, also by Lasse. Enjoy!

Thanks for the heads up, Sven!

She Just Likes to Fight

chutieboy took some time-lapse footage shot by Philip Bloom, kaleidoscope-o-fied it and then set it to some chilled-out Four Tet. After being subjected to our stringent approval process this video was unanimously deemed, ‘Suitable for mellow reflection and contemplation after a long weekend of merry-making.’ Recommended use instructions: full screen HD and headphones. Enjoy!

“Brother you don’t need to turn me away, I was waiting down at the ancient gate;
You’ll go, wherever you go today, you’ll go today.”

Encourage your Saturday night mellow with this most chill of pairings: the delicious haunting harmonies of Fleet Foxes served alongside the abstract cut-paper stop motion visions of Sean Pecknold. Both Sean and ‘Foxes have been featured on The Tripatorium™ before which can be handily accessed through the following two hyperlinks: Knowledge / Grown Ocean.

A big thanks goes to Chris for the suggestion – cheers!

Levi Beamish wrote in and asked us to check out a ‘video portrait’ he made with a, “simple practical effect achieved by stacking 100 video layers, pushing each layer one frame out of sync and [then] cropping [it] to 1% of [its original] size”. It’s the same concept used in the ‘Vital Signs’ video we posted back in March (be sure to check that one out of you haven’t seen it yet).

Short but sweet, we likey. The Kid Cudi backing tune was a nice touch, Levi; its just right for the visuals. Thanks for writing in!

“Now that television transmissions have gone completely digital you have probably seen this effect before.  You’re watching TV and then suddenly the image freezes.  Then, instead of glitching back to the next shot, its as if the next shot appears to be wearing the information from the previous shot.  It’s a surreal effect that can be hard to explain.”

Don Whitaker (of Squircle Zoom fame) wrote in to tell us about a video mashup technique called ‘datamoshing’ that, “uses video compression artifacts as a composition tool”. If you’re interested in trying it for yourself be sure to check out this three part tutorial that utilizes free, readily-available-on-the-internets software.

The attached music video – for the tune Mande Burung by Odelia – was created by Charlie Visnic and is an excellent application of the technique. Mind-bending, mellow and trip-tastic – enjoy!

Thanks for the heads-up, Don!

Peace On The Rise

“We can sit around this fire and let our spirits ride on out; watch it as a flame gets higher. I can see it in your eyes, whispers on the rise.”

Hey, guess what? I have some fantastic news!. Chad VanGaalen just posted another music video for a tune he released on Sub Pop and it’s exactly what you’d expect: chill, psychedelic and über-trippy. Enjoy!

Patrick Smith, we are forever in your debt for passing it along...cheers!

“Painstakingly animated frame by frame, the piece is all shot in camera, by real people, in the real world, using long exposure techniques.”

Darcy Prendergast and the talented folks at OH YEAH WOW composed this chill, contemplative (and trippy) music video for All India Radio using long exposure light paintings. Serving Suggestion: lights dimmed and headphones on with phasers set to maximum mellow. Enjoy!

A big thanks goes to Tyler Vanston for the submission, cheers!

This video by Pogo, a.k.a. Nick Bertke, was composed entirely of chords and vocal samples taken directly from Disney’s 1951 animated classic Alice in Wonderland. After posting it up on the ‘tubes Nick garned a fair amount of attention which lead to loads of cool work for high-profile clients like Pixar. It’s good times all around so grab those headphones and bliss out for a while…

Thanks for sending this in, Jani Saarelainen! It should also be mentioned that Pogo’s entire music catalog is available via a name-your-price storefront. He’s even cool enough to accept ‘$0.00’ but if you’ve got a couple of bucks why not send it his way? This is the type of behavior we should be encourage, wouldn’t you agree?

Gone Baby, Don’t Be Long

Why not get your mellow on via a choice cut from Erykah Badu’s latest album, ‘New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh’? The equally chill video was directed by Flying Lotus with post-production and modeling duties handled by a Tripatorium regular, beeple. It’s good times all around, folks.
