Okay, this isn’t really a Music Monday. A – It’s not Monday. And, 2 – It’s not really about the music. However, it’s still pretty darn cool (as evidenced by the number of people wearing shades).

I don’t know how original this is (and comparisons to Peter Gabriel’s video work spring to mind) but, while the technique is as old as the moving picture, it’s still an interesting use of it. The ‘music’ portion is “Malinkovec Valzer” by Maxmaber Orkestar.
Now, for the photography portion (Gravol may be required):
According to the video notes, 25-year old Eran Amir (I think that’s his name) developed over 1,500 pictures which displayed a video Sally Gardner style. Then 500 people were photographed holding them (I suppose the math means they each held 2 or 3 ‘frames’).
Now, if you think about the time it took to get 500 people to pose for this, you’ve probably forgotten to factor in the number of people who declined to have their pictures taken. And, if you’ve ever done anything like hand out flyers or, more appropriately, tried to stop pedestrians to have them answer a survey or listen to some spiel about a charity/company/whatever, then you can imagine how much time it took to get these 100 seconds.
Well, however he did it, it’s one heckuva project. And, we just might see it again someday.

ASIDE: I know I haven’t been around on the interwebz lately but, you know, there’s this other life outside the net (so they tell me), which involves things like family, friends, and bills. Although, I wonder if there’s an app for that…?
