Mach5--that soundtrack is actually available on his site in the Music section, it's the "No More Memory" one.

I loved the video also.

that was wicked.

The animation is extremely well done in a very wonderfully simplistic way. But I found the music both appropriate, and totally irritating. I would have used the idea of animated gifs being a parallel to silent films and borrowed the idea of a piano as a soundtrack.

The Midi crap just left me cold. The music worked well enough, but it could have been better.

[Watched the video at work with no sound and loved it. Watched the video at home with the music and wanted to hurt people.]

Good stuff. Makes me want to get off my duff and make some of my own. I liked those "fractal" gifs of the tri-headed teddy bear the most.

Great!! I've seen plenty of these before but had no idea they were all made by the same guy.

Yay! I've always like his stuff.

And may I just point out that he is a Brightoner (UK that is) and even made it onto the local BBC news once.

That is awesomely awesome. Something about it reminds me of video computer system.

I agree with yobananboy. I did not hear the tunes -- but did not need them -- as well I liked the VW Dung Beetle.

Having seen these all over the internets and finding out that all these come from the same guy is like when I heard that all the acid in the US was made by the same guy. It explained a lot and similarly warped my brain.

Yay! New nightmare fodder! My favorite was the alien Santa horking up Christmas gifts.
