If you haven’t seen it already, Meier & Erdmann absolutely nailed it with their video for the tune “Howler Monkey.” First, it doesn’t hurt that this is a crisp, funky, uncluttered earworm gem. Second, the video is dazzling.
Here’s the thing: there’s absolutely no reason why sound visualization needs to be so boring and familiar.
