Mario Wienrroither cuts up music videos to create surreal, musicless clips: Firestarter - Smells Like Teen Spirit - I Want To Break Free (Music videos without music previously, more previously)

I think he's got a short drive to surreal on that trio. I'm having a hard time thinking of any memorable videos that had non-performance action that wasn't some kind of weird out of context. The reengineering of the audio tracks is pretty sweet though :)

I like how the Firestarter video looks like a grimdark Krusty The Clown having a tantrum in a sewer.

Yeah, when I saw "musicless" clips, I was thinking it was just the videos without sound, so of course if you chop that up it will look silly. But the new audio adds so much nuance to the video, especially the drips and echoes in that Prodigy clip. Sweet find.

Well done! The addition of mundane noises adds an eerie quality to these videos that I really like. I'm not sure what that says about me, though.

I have decided that the Firestarter one is a Bruce Nauman home movie

I'm a fan of this sort of thing.

They're like artsier "shreds" videos, without the infantile, homophobic audio. Win!

Reminds me of my favorite video of Metallica in concert.

(Oh wow, Andy Rehfeldt has done a bunch of entertaining concert and performance video remixes.)

Smells like meme spirit.

Stupid? Check.
Contagious? Check.

This is correct viewing for having taken a bunch of cough medicine.
