Skyence - Design Bureau


Monday, November 15th, 2010

Skyence is the musical project of German producer Jochen Mader. This video, for the track "INSCT," features direction and animation from Berlin-based Johannes Timpernagel. Timpernagel generated the animation in a free program called VVVV, and edited it in Adobe After Effects.

The video is a "generative audio visualization," which essentially means "visualizer"—but these effects aren't like anything you seen in iTunes. Each nuance of the song is captured in spastic detail and a series of abstract explosions. According to Mader, "the music is based on some insect Foley sounds recorded in the Alps and Dolomites."
