Japanese Band Creates Incredible Animation Using 189 Spinning CDs
posted on by Bamboo Dong
Japanese band Sour recently released a very unique animated video for their song, "Life is Music." Only instead of using traditional animation frames, they used 189 compact discs imprinted with different designs and images to create an animation effect similar to early phenakistoscopes.
The CDs were designed to display 17-frame loops to sync up with the song's 105 BPM, and even includes sequences of the band members playing their instruments.
The incredible video can be watched here.
There is also a "making of" video, which can be watched here.
