Song Production Information
Trying to imagine what mind mapping would be like, this song came about.
Expanding from this phrase, the production imagined what a sound mind would be like.
This was created from the principle that individuals protect themselves by making things up.
People were surprised by this, but I expected this.
This song may strike close to you.
Video Production Information
From a single keyword, more keywords and writing came about in a radial pattern.
This keyword came to me, like cells dividing.
To try to illustrate this thought, such as getting lost and avoiding repetition, spreading the idea more, I used abstract patterns and motion graphics.
The hanging strings and the electronic sounds. They overlap each other remarkably without sounding like two separate entities. The music is impressive as a result.
