Gantz Graf by Autechre
Music video for (at the time) state-of-the-art abstract IDM, still stands strong today. I’ve checked and it is 3 months away from it’s 10th anniversary, and is just as relevant to modern ideas to aesthetics in both sound and visuals. Personally, I believe it to be a creative milestone.
The music video for “Gantz Graf” reached a cult status in underground computer-generated imagery art circles. The video features an abstract object (or an agglomeration of objects) perfectly synchronized to the sounds in the music as it morphs, pulsates, shakes, and finally dissolves. The visuals contain the same amount of richness and detail as the soundtrack does, having a visual counterpart to every little sound or frequency range in the song. Alex Rutterford (who had previously created an unofficial video for the Tri Repetae track “Eutow” as part of a Channel 4 music programme in 2001) claims the idea for the “Gantz Graf” video came during one of his LSD trips.
