From the Author:
“3 Dreams of Black” takes you on a journey through three dream worlds constructed through a combination of rich 2D drawings and animations interwoven with interactive 3D sequences. Throughout various points in these dream worlds, you can grab your mouse and guide the protagonist’s point of view through the experience. This music experience also includes a 3D model creator that allows you to create your own relics and contribute to the shared collective dream. “3 Dreams of Black” is written and directed by Chris Milk, and developed with a few folks here at Google.

Just playing around with photography, soundrecording and a little ActionScript. This tiny tool was created in collaboration with a friend of mine who’s an expert on beatboxing. Press K, S and H for boxing the beat!

In this intactmuvi (INTerACTive MUsic VIdeo) the rap musician “V-Stick” embodies a person haunted by visions of doomsday. Being labelled as a maniac by society, he tries to warn people of the imminent apocalypse. Following him on his mission, you will see pictures of death and destruction through his eyes.
The intactmuvi is build by a combination of photo an video. By shifting photolayers in a parallactic system, the illusion of a three-dimensional space is created. Thereby, the user gets the impression of rotating in the location while he controls the shifting direction and speed with the movement of his mouse. Furthermore, he can navigate through several stations and meets the lyricist who performs the song.
In contrast to a linear music video, the user decides what he sees and when he sees it. He becomes, so to speak, the director of the music video by setting the cuts. This has the advantage of substaining the attention of the user and persuading him to consume the song probably a while longer than he would do on a classical music video. Additionally, the user feels closer connected with the musician he likes, while he controls his moves and is able to switch into the musicians perspective. An extra stimulus is given by the chance to get a free download if every hidden secret in the intactmuvi was found.
Possibilities for the publication of such an intactmuvi are, for example, the musician’s homepage, the header of a Myspace fanpage or an audio CD as a bonus.
There is a nice little hack for making the timeline of YouTube videos precisely controllable by user commands. If you still don’t know how to create playable instruments within the YouTube player, check out this tutorial on Seth Sandlers blog!
For just playing around with it, you can find a lot of nice instruments on the InstrumenTube channel.
