Ólafur Arnalds – Ljósið (Official Music Video) from Erased Tapes on Vimeo.

Esteban Diácono has produced a delicate, fluid animation in a music video for Ólafur Arnalds’ track Ljósið, on the album “Found Sounds” (Erased Tapes Records; available on vinyl/download).You can also buy the video on iTunes (direct link).

The results are mesmerizing, without so much as a camera move. The video has been making the rounds, but I’ve just happened across it via Dave Haynes (SoundCloud, OpenMusicMedia, Music Hackday), who discovered it via Aurgasm.us and Paul Irish. (And yes, that sentence sums up how, even in an age of overabundance, growing population, and globalism, wonderful things still get discovered online.)

I can think of no better way to take us out to the weekend. See you next week.

/Jaymis: As Cort3x points out, we have posted this before, but it’s a spectacularly lovely piece, so there’s no reason not to watch it again, and check out the original post for a little more detail on how it was created.

    I was wondering what the news was in this piece.

  • tweakngknobs

    didnt u post this allready?

    anyway is a nice piece

    I think spectacularly lovely is really a bit of a stretch. If that was regular film and not computer generated, I think we'd generally be in agreement that it was pretty boring. Does the medium make that much difference?

    Definitely posted this already.

    And I have to agree with rembrandt. While the effect looks great and is impressive, this seems to follow the typical artist routine: discover/develop something cool, then just do it over and over rather than developing it further into a meaningful piece.
