4 Years Later

For anyone that's still alive to remember or care, I have some news concerning the soundtrack for that head video I made back in 2014, which was attracting a lot of requests for an extended version. Well, I'm afraid to say things didn't quite work out as expected.

No, instead I went well beyond that and made an entire music-visualisation-extended-sountrack-video out of it! It now has its own title (String Theory), and it can be viewed/heard below. The track is available on Bandcamp (in various formats incl. 24 bit lossless), CD Baby, iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and most other places (not Google Play though unfortunately, as that would cause a conflict with the video).

Note: since YouTube seems to have trouble with thin lines and subtle gradients, I scaled the video up to 4K to reduce compression artefacts. So even though its native resolution is 1080p, it looks better at higher resolutions. If you're using Edge or Firefox and can't access 1440p or 2160p, try the following:

Edge: Type about:flags in the address bar and change "Enable VP9 video format" to "Always On"

Firefox: Type about:config in the address bar and find "media.mediasource.webm.enabled". Double-click on it to change it to "True".
