Try this as an experience.
Mute the video, and put on a random song from whatever playlist you can find anywhere, from your phone to your YouTube channel.
It's priceless.

great demonstration of controlling the particles! Nicely done animation, pure art. This feels freshly baked and deserves 5 stars!

I liked the animation but felt that there was a lot missing. To me it was very abstract and that took away from what this could have been. Little gimmicks like the flower blooming and wings flapping were cool and made it different, but I'd have liked to see more creative movements and possibly different objects interacting with each other. What you have here is very pretty but could have easily just been a screensaver, or if it had been five seconds it might have been mistaken for an intro cinematic. Fantastic work but there's no message here.

Really surprised that the music was VNV Nation, the only song I'd heard from them before was Further.
