In singing, there is a rare type of voice that both soothes the soul and curls the blood, seems both divine and demonic, inspires and scares, this is the voice of a Basso Profondo.
Such a voice is sure to breed feelings of jealousy and sexual inferiority in an average bass singer, and this cartoon presents such feelings as perilous.

The orchestra sequence has been shamefully rotoscoped from the BPO's performance of Tchaikovsky's Flower Waltz, it can be found here,

A great use of the Basso Profondo is made, as shown in the last scene, in the choir singing of the Orthodox Church of Russia, and example can be found here,

A special thanks to all those whose voice dwells into the counteroctave.

Low pitch, top notch!

Haha! This was awesome. You expect the glass to shatter, but instead the table is jellified, and the glass is broken anyway! Poor cat.

A Surprising One

That was quite good! I was not thinking I'd be impressed with it at first glance, but you are on my favorites so I gave it a try. Very good style of one-man frame by frame animation. The story was powerfully delivered with such simple dialogue and text - and the bit of humor kept my attention!

The Sound of the Universe

Some say it's Om. Some say it's Amen. I say it's the voice of a basso profundo exploding animals and invoking Jesus.
Absolutely something worthy of a 5 and a 10. And a dead cat.

wonderful work Man!!!

exploding cat and all lol, ur graphics was awesome so was the singing, interesting use of frame by frame and color and black and while . One observation in the first scene when the guy turn off the light i think u had as mask layer or something the color was covering a section of the guy but anyway keep working i love this 10

That was deep! (PUN!)

I loved it, such an original storyline with an equally idiosyncratic animation style. Thanks!
