Music Monday: Haisuinonasa ‘Dynamics of the Subway’

Monday 29 June 2015
Words Alice Bell

What starts as a deceptively simple game of Pong soon turns into a mesmerising display of animation in pure monochrome glory.

As the video develops, a beautiful visual landscape is created to accompany the building soundscape, each element perfectly timed so it almost looks like some sort of digital instrument.

Director Keita Onishi explains “each note from the instruments is represented by a geometric shape in the animation; while these shapes move in sync with the song, they also form the parts that create the subway itself.”.
