Pyromaniacs, You'll Love This Visualization of Sound as Bursts of Flame

By Kasia Cieplak-Mayr von Baldegg

Combustion, gorgeous experimental video from Possible Metrics, draws on the hypnotic powers of fire and music. The Montreal-based creative team, helmed by Renaud Hallée, specializes in "music-oriented audiovisual works." The video builds slowly, beginning with 30 seconds of an unassuming campfire. Make sure to watch full screen with the lights low and the sound up, if you can, because soon the sparks fly and a spectacle of orange and blue flames emerges.
