About the Visuals

To create the music visualization of the video, I used the Generate Spectrum function in Adobe After Effects (CS4), applied the spectrum to a circular mask and then ran it though a variety of effects such as Fast Radial Blur, Griddler (to create the tiles) and Kaleida (to create the kaleidoscope-like effect).
