This one’s a little darker, but I find this video strangely hopeful, the slow evolution of something beautiful in the midst of chaos. And it’s a great visual interpretation of a piece of music. It’s on the DVD version of Coldcut’s ‘Sound Mirrors’ album.
Also available from Factory Films and Special10. And a bit of trivia – at the end of the video, those odd structures are in fact the early warning sound mirrors – huge concrete sound-catching devices built right before the invention of radar, so you could hear in-bound fighter planes while they were still over the channel.
