The Ruffled Crow

Animation, Art, and Other Shiny Things

Verbal – Amon Tobin

I’ve had Mr Tobin’s Out From Out Where album in my car for a few months now and I know this track well. I came across the video a few days ago, and as is my usual, I watched it with the sound off. I always do that first time through an animation, to get a ‘feel’ for the art of it, if that makes any sense.

It looked like a fairly mundane car chase, maybe even a machinima, three minutes of it. Uh, ok.

Second time through, this time with sound. I know the track and what to expect – and I was riveted for the entire three minutes twenty. The colors trailing over the cars, the occasional road hazard, the details were all in perfect synch to the music.
