While basking in the pale blue glow of the LED screen, scanning the internet to bring only the best content to you, the most awesome OpHuMod reader, I simply entered the word “space” into the search engine of a video site.
Amongst footage of stars, the ISS and solar flares, I discovered the mesmerizing efforts of VJ Aurel.
Please find below two vids of some amazing trance music, set to footage culled from dozens of science fiction films from the past several decades.
To use VJ Aurel’s own words:
The visual material interweaves with memories in a series of layers, the diffraction of the images gradually releasing the memories. A fusion of photos, movie clips and graphic beats put various dreams into motion.
Serious commentary aside, and as a die-hard sci-fi fan, it was fun just trying to identify the sources of all the imagery used. I was able to pick out Star Trek, Firefly, Resident Evil, Dune, Riddick, Barbarella and Flash Gordon. Will definitely be viewing a few more times to see what I missed.
Go full screen. Turn it up. Enjoy!
Aside from the Vimeo link above, VJ Aurel can also be found on the Trancinetik Collective.
