I commissioned a chiptune artist on a lark and only gave them some music of Arvo Part and Steve Reich as references and this is what they came back with - it was so perfect it hurt. I knew I wanted to work with something to do with loops, and the music just lent itself perfectly for these explorations. I don't want to dwell on the meaning too much as I don't want to take away from this 'full-tilt' abstraction. I think if you just watch it a couple times the meaning will just kind of wash over you.

This numbering system in the bottom left hand corner started out as just a note for myself to keep track of the loops. I ended up keeping it in.

I had a very difficult time with this ending. Probably over two weeks for the last 10 seconds or so.
