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.
There’s lots of stuff to say about this video – that it’s beautiful, enigmatic, warm, peaceful and ethereal (among many other hyperbolic adjectives) – but I just can’t get out of my mind what would be going through Mr. Claude Debussy’s mind when he saw what kind of visuals would be accompanying Claire de Lune in two-thousand and ten.
