OK, apparently I just have to get a little more off my chest.

Hexadecagon.

Just saying it, you know something epic’s behind it. It’s a project from Austin’s own The Octopus Project that uses eight channels of audio and eight channels of visuals to create an immersive experience. I missed it at SXSW, and I missed it again last night. Because I was studying. Epic bummer.

But I bought the LP, which is charming because it comes with its own mini-zoetrope that you build and play on top of the record. And, several of the videos are worth watching over and over and over again. Compression has taken away some of the depth of the videos, but they are stunning nonetheless.
