Today’s fascinating find is an abstract animation by Takashi Ohashi.
Apart from being visually spectacular, what makes this piece very interesting is the sound that accompanies it. Listen to the song carefully. Think you’re hearing Teletubbies gibberish? Nope. Those sounds are actually the unique syllabic sounds of the Japanese language.
The director, in a statement sent to Cartoon Brew, expounds:
This musical composition was made by recording 6 natural voice vocal tracks from singer Luschka and selecting lyrics with Japanese syllabic combinations which afforded expression. The track comprises words which themselves are meaningless, but carefully combining syllables and their respective unique resonances ensured highly musical peaks and troughs.
