8:27 Procrastination: Musical Amusement

Here are some procras-tastic ways that people have integrated internet, media, and music for your procrastination pleasure.

  1. Black Moth Super Rainbow's Interactive Music Video -- This psychedelic Pennsylvania band decided to opt out of a typical 2-4 minute long music video for a more unique vision. They collaborated with LA based directing team Radical Friends to create a website that acts as an interactive music video for their single "Dark Bubbles". You can control the movements of the sun and stars with head and hand motions using a webcam or mouse cursor. I don't know if this technique is going to catch on, but I'm just saying if you did this and then watched this -- life may just get a bit more interesting.

  2. Do It Yourself Daft Punk -- Now you can Kanye too! allows you kinda sorta be Daft Punk with iDaft, a console that lets you use your keyboard to play songs like "Harder, Better, faster, Stronger" and "Technologic." They even have a game called Digital Simon, a variation of Simon Says set to Daft Punk's "Digital Love."

  3. Birds on a Wire turned into song -- This is more random than anything else, but it amused me nonetheless. It is a video in which a telephone wire has been turned into a scale and each bird has been converted into a note to make a melody that is not half bad.
