Draw to the music. I have no idea what this is about, but it's kind of pretty. (Music starts instantly once main page loads.)

At the risk of being booed off the page, I ought to credit @gazbeirne off of twitter.

Very pretty. Nice animation on the cursor. Thanks.

The constant scrolling made it difficult to draw a bunch of dicks, but I did it anyway.

Damn, that's pretty.

I've played it twice so far, and it's as animated when one moves the mouse as when one doesn't (tho you always get the silhoutted man in the hat early in).

It made me smile when I heard "agua" and the cursor turned into splashing blue water. A woman's legs appeared, and a shadowy guy in a hat, and the kissing red lips was like icing on the cake.

I agree. It *is* pretty!

The voice is lovely, too.

Can anyone translate the song?

Incredible. I just wish it was possible to zoom out and see what you drew by the end.

misha: The google translated lyrics are here.

Searching for that led me to this, basically the linked-to website projected onto buildings and controlled by wiimote. It's worth a look.

The band behind the music The Pinker Tones have a bit of a thing about visuals/video and a reputation for working with great animators/programmers

In case anyone wanted a translation from a native Spanish speaker, I apologize for the non-poeticness of it, but I tried to just get her point across.

I am from the air, I am from the water
I make tiny little grooves in the melted face of your white-grey hairs.
And I am entering little by little
very tinily in your tickles.
I make myself comfortable, and I make you uncomfortable so you laugh
and I strain* myself in this tangle without calling out, without warning.

I am your air, I am your water.
You drink me, I swallow you
you breath me, I splash you, you drink me
and I entertain myself I play for a bit in your memories
I put them on my skirt
I tear your laments to shreds
I create crazy fantasies
and I confuse your memories with the tip of my kisses

I am from the air, I am from the water
I am from the air, I am from the water
Well they say don't tie me down because I'll escape
in-between your fingers
Impassable, I will convert for you the impossible into the not thought of
and I build from the insecure an improvised future
where 1 and 1 do not make 2
and the rest remain the rest.

*to strain as in the one used in cooking.

That should be about right.
