OMODAKA is the name of the project developed through a trial and error process of mutational fusion of music and motion graphics. It will knock over your existing image toward a music video by a beautiful trajectory.

  2. Amazing! I love the apparent simplicity of it.

  3. Fantastic video!

    I looped it without a second thought. I’m not a connoisseur of contemporary dance art, neither a big fan of it, but the work on the dancer’s movements, and how her grace is segmented by the machine, supported by a very engaging electronic music… mamamia! that is just so beautiful.

    Want more! :)

  5. Beautiful – nice one Warren.

  6. […] Really interesting video mixing modern dance, motion graphics and music. Maybe being married to a talented dancer has something to do with this, but I find this really inspiring, there’s an amazingly interesting junction between video and dance. link via WarrenEllis […]

  7. Interesting video blog. OMODAKA is the name of the project developed through a trial and error process of mutational fusion of music and motion graphics. There is a difference between beautiful and sublime. A lot of beautiful things pass by on this blog, but it is not often that my heart skips a beat as it is confronted with the sublime.
