Pala Leda – Janzilker (Animation by Micah Buzan)

Psychedelic and Weird Animation Music Video!

Musician: Pala Leda
Song: Janzilker
Animator: Micah Buzan

I made this over a 2 month period. This animation is my own personal interpretation of the music. Pala Leda told me to just make whatever popped into my imagination, so that’s what I did.

It follows the logic of a dream. One scene was spontaneously animated after the other, yet it’s all connected in a way.

I tried to tell a coherent story with this one. I still have no idea what it’s about ultimately. But I like keeping things open to interpretation. People seek order in the chaos. We see faces in the clouds when there really are none. We’re pattern seeking creatures.

Sometimes I wish things could exist for the sake of existing. There doesn’t have to be a deeper meaning to everything. We know sleep is vital to health, but what functions do dreams actually serve? I have heard a lot of theories for the purpose of dreams, but it all seems more rooted in superstition than empirical evidence.

Again, we create purpose when perhaps there is none. Or maybe the purpose is beyond what are brains are capable of understanding, so our ignorance and conjecture is a defense mechanism against the incomprehensible.

Why is it so hard to admit “I don’t know?” It’s like our species has to know, or at least half-know everything, even if we can’t know.

I don’t smoke drugs.

Best Psychedelic Videos of 2018

10 Jan

Enjoy this somewhat belated list of the best psychedelic videos of 2018. 2018 was a great year for psychedelic videos, as we’re sure you’ll appreciate from these videos.

How to watch these videos

We recommend dedicating an evening to watching these videos on big, high-rez screens, with good speakers and in a receptive, psychedelic state of mind (possibly aided by a mind-alterant) with a group of good friends. Let these videos take you on a journey.

Psychedelia in Film – Supercut

This video created by YouTube user Hazy Dazy does not contain even one original frame – yet it is a masterful mix of psychedelia in film, amounting to an erudite and exquisite essay on the psychedelic effect in cinema.  What’s more, it’s also damn effective and emulative of the real thing. A must watch. (Original Post).

Trevor Moore: The Story of Our Times – “My Computer Just Became Self Aware” – Uncensored

Trevor Moore created this hilarious music clip which tells the story of a dude whose computer got high on cocaine, DMT and a bunch of other drugs. (Original Post).

The Asteroids Galaxy Tour: Apollo

Danish group Asteroids Galaxy Tour stunned us again, with this spectacular video for their single Apollo. Wow! (Original Post).

“Peace On Earth/Little Drummer Boy” by The Flaming Lips

Flaming Lips released this video around Christmas this year. It’s been called an “acid drenched homage” to David Bowie’s and Bing Crosby’s 1977 collaborative effort (they originally released this song), with the band dressed as what some have identified as “futuristic alien knights.” We ourselves are not quite sure just what this video is about, but it certainly leaves a deliciously elfish impression on the soul. (Original Post).

“Drunk In LA” by Beach House

This video released by Beach House this year, masterfully utilizes special effects to create a captivating psychedelic effect. (Original Post).

Circles Around The Sun – One For Chuck

What an awe-some and awe-inspiring video Circles Around the Sun created here. It takes the viewer inward on a never-ending spiral of beauty and chill. (Original Post).

6-ION by Julius Horsthuis

Fractal Master Julius Horsthuis released two masterpieces this year (second one is next on this list). Horsthuis takes fractal aesthetic several layers beyond anything we’ve seen before, creating infinitely detailed spectacular landscapes that leave the viewer gasping. (Original Post).

BIRDS OF PARADISE – Eternal Recurrence / Julius Horshuis

The mentioned second fractal masterpiece by Master Horsthuis. (Original Post).

“Thunderclouds” by LSD ft. Sia, Diplo, Labrinth

This awesome video titled “LSD-Thunderclouds” was released by Sia, Deeplo and Labyrinth this August and received hundreds of millions of views, proving once again that psychedelic styles and references can make their way into pop music’s most successful acts. (Original Post).

Sandbox Immersive Festival 2018

A visually stunning trailer to the China’s virtual media festival, “Sandbox Immersive Festival” showed again that psychedelic effects are continuing to trickle into Chinese media. (Original Post).

Larytta – Osama Obama

How could two people have the exact same day, and such different lives? Which is better, being Obama or being Osama? A tale about duplicity, the ironies of life and your possible doppelgänger. (Original Post).

BajaAjax – Commercial District (animation: Paul Plastic)

Awesome video by BajaAjax will not fail in getting into a chilly psychedelic mood. (Original Post).

Tal National – Akokas

This kickass video by West African group Tal National opened us to the vibrant African psychedelic scene with a fresh mixture of rocking sounds and colors from the black continent. (Original Post).

See the Stunning Beauty of Flowers Exposed to Fire, Ice, and Ink | Short Film Showcase

A breathtaking video by National Geographic mixes flowers, fire and ice. (Original Post).

Maniac Intro Scene

Also, Netflix released a new and impressive mini-series titled Maniac this year, and the opening scene… It was… damn! (Original Post).

 

Videos from past years published on the DPV in 2018

These videos were not made on 2018, but they were first featured on the DPV this year and we thought they merit your attention, so we added them on this list.

Kate Tempest – Europe is Lost

Wow, Kate Tempest blew my mind! This video is not psychedelic in the classic sense, but it is highly mind-evocative. And if psychedelic consciousness means anything, I think this highly timely, poignant, so true video by Tempest, tearing the masks off the current structures of global power and control is just spot on. (Original Post).

Journey To The Center – Bassnectar

Sebastian Wahl and Lake Media take you on mind-boggling a journey to the center. (Original Post).

James Hood – Tapestry

A relaxing journey along ethereal realities of beauty and calm. (Original Post).

Ward- Hiphopefullyzz (prod. by E&K)

A stunning journey into the depths of fantasia-land. (Original Post).

Etienne de Crecy – No Brain (By Fleur & Manu )

A hardcore journey in techno-landscapes. (Original Post).

John Hickman – Cascade – Official animated music by Michael Buzan

With all those computer generated graphics increasingly taking over psychedelic video, it’s always good to encounter a new gem by psychedelic master-painter Micach Buzan. (Original Post)

Junior Senior – “Move Your Feet

“Everybody, move your feet and feel united!” Quite possibly the best feelgood video ever. Just can’t listen to this without my mood shooting a zillion points into the sky. (Original Post).
