Pala Leda – Janzilker (Animation by Micah Buzan)

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.

The 25 Best Psychedelic Videos Ever

29 Dec

These 25 videos have been selected from over 3000 psychedelic videos which have been featured on the DPV over the past 7 years. If you are looking for our 2012 best of all times list, you can find it here.

Wild Child – Rillo Talk

One of our DPV favorites, this 360 degrees video by American Indie pop group Wild Child offers a simultaneously trippy and laid back experience from the landscapes of Austin, Texas. A great video to trip out and chill off with. (Original post).

 

Cycle – Kouhei Nakama

Kouhei Nakama’s is a gifted Japanese visual art director who creates beautiful and pensive computer generated animations, and if you liked this one, check out his video diffusion which was also featured on the DPV. (Original post)

 

Bonobo – Cirrus (Clip by Cyriak)

Cyriak, the web’s mad genius of consciousness-altering visuals, deconstructs 1950s style visuals and creates a complex swirling web of hypnotic disorientation.  (Original post).

 

The Music Scene – Anthony Francisco Schepperd (2010)

Anthony Francisco Schepperd is one of the most gifted psychedelic animators of our time, and the video clip he created to the Blockheads’ “The Music Scene” is certainly his masterpiece so far. Schepperd deconstructs reality into colorful vibrating splashes of color which reconstruct again into vibrating pieces of psychedelic flesh. (Original Post)

Getter – Head Splitter

San Jose DJ Tanner Pettula AKA Getter is a seriously screwing with your brain in this melting-point psychedelic video. If you liked this one you might also enjoy his sequel video to the toxic hamburger tails rip and dip. (Original post).

 

Mikhail Sadovnikov – Dance on the Circle

If we didn’t know this is real we wouldn’t have believed it. A spectacularly psychedelic technique of creating beautiful, captivating shapes with a clay wheel and water. Awesome! (Original post).

 

Jeu – Georges Schwizgebel (2006)

Multiperspectivism and multi-dimensionality are fundamental motifs of psychedelic aesthetics and philosophy.  Radically psychedelic, Georges Schiwzgebel’s “Jeu”, takes the viewer into a dizzying yet joyful world of ever-changing perspectives. It is in the second half of the clip that things become really dynamic and chaotic, as our perception of the world keeps re-orienting itself to the changing relations of the objects on the screen. (Original Post).

 

Memories of paintings – Thomas Blanchard

An exquisite work of meditative psychedelia, Thomas Blanchard’s memories of paintings delves into microscopic bubble universes and finds endless infinitesimal detail in the interactions between paint, oil, oat milk and soap. (Original post).

 

Terence Mckenna – The Message

Terence McKenna launces on an inspired rant about the psychedelic experience and it’s meaning to mankind, masterfully mixed with inspiring visuals. (Original post).

 

Coldplay – Up and Up

Coldplay’s UP and Up video, directed by Vania Heymann and Gal Muggia is a surrealist masterpiece bringing together all types of disparate elements like cars driving on the rings of Saturn, a gymnast jumping over fields bombarded by napalm bombs, a ferry docking inside a bathtub, or divers inside a washing machine. Rene Magritte couldn’t have done it better. (Original post).

 

OK Go – I won’t let you down

Of all the crazy OK Go videos, this one is probably the craziest of all. Shot in double speed, with hundreds of Japanese performers on Honda UNI-CUB’s (Honda sponsored the making of the video) it defies belief. However, what you are about to see is real, even the most incredible patterns which emerge by the end of the clip. (Original post).

 

Dye ft. Egyptian Lover – She’s Bad

DYE’s “She’s bad” chooses a brilliant animal-world set-up for a femme-fatale story of seduction and betrayal. Exquisitely brought together with highly creative use of multi-layered visuals. (Original post).

 

Tune Yards – Water Fountain

The Tune Yards’s “Water Fountain” is a refreshing burst of psychedelic energy. Without too many fancy effects, the group creates a playful and wacky universe which makes you want to jump into the screen and join the party. (Original post).

 

OK Go – The writing on the wall (2014)

Ok Go’s The Writing on the Wall is a phenomenal masterpiece of disorienting optical illusions. (Original post).

 

Rollin’ Wang – Chick Chick

“Chick Chick” by Chinese singer Rollin’ Wang lashes the viewer relentlessly with bright scintillating colors and animal sounds. We love it! (Original post).

 

Liquid Stranger – The Gargon  

Australian artist Andy Thomas  has spent years “taking photos of plants, insects and machines and compositing them with artificially created form (…) corrupting nature with technology, by sampling sounds of the forest and running them through various computer programs.” A breathtaking video.

(Original post).

 

Micah Buzan – Mixed Up

Micah Buzan is an extraordinarily gifted musician and animator who hand-draws his material with an “acid pencil” as my DPV colleague Holographic Elf aptly called it. There is something intensely hallucinatory about both the spacey music created by Buzan, as well as the by weirdly transforming figures he brings to life. Buzan’s work has been amply featured on the DPV over the past years. You can check out more of his work here. (Original post).

 

Daniel Stoupin – Slow Life

Marine life forms such as coral and sponges live on a different time scale than we humans. To us they seem static and unmoving, yet these animals build coral reefs and are incredibly dynamic if viewed in the right time scale. This groundbreaking video by Daniel Stoupin uses pioneering and experimental methods to allow us to enter the slow time scale of these marine animals and watch them in action. Prepare to be awed. (Original post).

 

Libynthth – It’s My Beak

A bunch of ducks party wildly and colorfully in a video which reeks of pure mischievous and trippy fun. (Original post).

 

Bianca Giaever – The scared is scared

The perfect psychedelic children’s story which isn’t really a children’s story at all. Bianca Giaever asked a six year old what her movie should be about, then she went about and followed her instructions word for word. Language creates reality.(Original post).

 

Kanahebi – Slowly Rising (2015)

Japanese director Hideaki Inaba created this spectacular video showing mysterious underwater creatures performing their immaculate dances.

(Original Post)

 

Solipsist – Andrew Thomas Huang

Andrew Thomas Huang produced a number of dazzling psychedelic videos over the past couple of years.  Solipsist stands above them all. The video contains some gripping psychedelic imagery, exhibiting Huang’s unique psychedelic style and vision to a full extent. (Original post).

 

Rye Rye – Boom Boom

Baltimore rapper Rye created this hyper-psychedelic and fun version of Vengaboy’s Boom Boom. (Original post)

A bird ballet

The fractals created by the birds in the sky can sometimes be more beautiful than anything ever created with the flashiest CGI effects. (Original post).
