Arcade Fire – “Reflektor” Interactive Video
While my phone’s movements were slightly bogged down by latency issues, I expect that other users with more reliable internet connections will have a more fluid experience. I opted to watch the video a second time using my trackpad, which worked much better. Some of the effects are more enjoyable than others, with the best (in my opinion) happening around the midway point (see images below).
The song is excellent – hopefully a sign of things to come next month when the full album is released. The videos, while not totally revolutionary, are sufficiently artsy and innovative to have peaked my interest.
