I'm impressed!
That's a REALLY good video. I sure wasn't expecting such thing.
I still don't understand if the sound of the harddrives (which do the vocals, from what I understand) really comes from the hdds or if it's modified to that it sounds that way.

I think it's the sound of the platters. Btw the first 20 seconds 1 minute is for spectrum nostalgists as it loads the score, be patient :D

okay, when I first saw this -
I thought the guy is nude doing this performance - no big surprise - he's been to Art school...
after seeing the video - with the title "Big Ideas (don't get any)" I presumed this to be the name of the song and I was thinking, so, how do we know he's actually nude while doing all this  ;D  ...

It's the song "Nude" by Radiohead. :) Part of the lyrics say "Don't get any big ideas. They're not gonna happen."

The first time I saw this I wasn't that impressed for some reason. I didn't like how it took until about 1:30 before I could even recognize the song. But that was last night and it was late.

Now I just skip to about 1:10 and enjoy the video. It sure is neat!

I know :Thmbsup: I figured that out (disclaimer: just in case people think I'm really dumb :P it was only initially when I first saw it - )
