VIDEO Dynamics Plus – Architect of the Heavens

It’s a cosmic journey of sound, based on the sights of our planetary system. What unseen hand shaped the heavens and put the planets in motion? He has left us wheels and cogs as evidence of his handiwork. A clock maker on a universal scale. Beyond time and space are the designs of His celestial order. We are small witnesses to a divine miracle.

What cosmic force is the Architect of the Heavens?

Producer Dynamics Plus from The Lenzmen and Fallout Shelter creates an ambient experience as we travel across our solar system and feel the pull of the planets. Gravity is translated into sound and the result is the vibration from the void and the frequencies found within the firmament.

Google releases an A.I. – sampling drum machine – thing. It’s presented Google Creative Lab and was created by Kyle McDonald, Manny Tan and Yotam Mann. I found fun to play with and good for percussive accents and bits and bobs of ear-candy. Thanks Google.
