aM laboratory – ToneMatrix

My friend, Mike, sent me the link to this awesome music application by aM laboratory called ToneMatrix. It is a simple sinewave synthesizer triggered by an ordinary 16step sequencer. Don’t ask me what that means, but it is a lot of fun to play with, and pretty to look at, too.

Superbrothers – Sword and Sworcery EP

Sword and Sworcery EP by Superbrothers was the featured game on iTunes this weekend. I checked out the app preview and it looked so incredible that I had to try it out. I haven’t completed one of the sessions yet, I only had 5 minutes to try it out last night and I’m not sure what I am supposed to do in the game, but its graphics and soundtrack are both pretty incredible. I’m looking forward to seeing what the rest of the game is like.

Learn more about the project here.

Teams vs. Star Slinger – Close to Me

The Teams vs. Star Slinger LP is really good. And the video for Close To Me, directed by Jordan Kim is hilarious.

SF to Paris in Two Minutes from Beep Show on Vimeo.

This is a fun time lapse video that was shot by a passenger on a trip from San Francisco to Paris. The photos were shot roughly every two miles between take-off in San Francisco and landing in Paris CDG, and includes some beautiful footage of the Aurora Borealis.

Redbull – My Inner Secrets – KERS and Rear Wing

Another cool Redbull animation about the new F1 technologies that make racing a little bit more like a video game.

Sucker Punch

From the director of 300 and The Watchmen, Zack Snyder’s new Sucker Punch opens in a few weeks. Looks like a fun movie to watch.

Une Vie de Chat

The trailer for Une Vie de Chat looks like a fun film to watch. I can more or less guess what it is about, but I’ll have to wait for a subtitled version. But the animation is done by hand and is amazing!

Azorian : The Raising of The K-129

We just started watching Azorian: The Raising of The K-129 on Netflix instant. I had read about the CIA’s project before, but this documentary is bananas! It’s like Hunt for Red October but for real – stealing a Russian ballistic missle sub without the Russians knowing about it. I love the 3d models and animations of how the Glomar Explorer and Capture Vehicle. If you don’t know anything about the story, go watch the film!

Dead Island Trailer

Whoah. Dead Island trailer is a mix of JJ Abrams and zombies. Can’t wait to see what the actual game is like, hopefully more than just axing zombies to bits.
