Dezeen Music Project: in this music video by animation designer Nick Cobby, billowing forms are used to visualise a gentle piano solo and spiky geometric shapes appear when electronic sounds are played over the top.
Circular forms expand one after another in time with the piano keys and disperse into alien-like tentacles, lines and dots as the notes resonate.
When the electronic glitches kick in, the visuals dramatically change into sharp, spiky shapes that pulse and distort with the beat.
"The track hit me as having two very different styles to it, so I wanted to create two polar opposite visuals - one that followed the piano and one that came in with the glitch effects," Cobby told Dezeen.
"The piano was more of a free-flowing sound so I wanted some kind of natural or organic element, while the harsh glitch needed to be mechanical, sharper and more defined."
The movie is purely black and white until muted colours appear as the piano is reintroduced on its own. The colour flickers off again towards the end of the track.
"It didn't strike me as a video that should have lush colour," Cobby said, "except for the middle part of the track when the piano comes back in after all the glitch. It sounds so peaceful and I wanted some colour to subtly come in to help signify that."
"I used a plugin [for visualisation software Particular] called Sound Keys to monitor the waveform of the piano to create the pulses - but with a lot of manual keyframing as well to tweak it," he said. "I'm a big fan of just using one or two methods to create a whole video, as I think the restriction helps me to be more creative."
"I wanted the viewer to feel very calm at one point then really on edge the next," Cobby added. "That's how I felt when I heard the track and what I really liked about it, so hopefully that comes across."
