Benga, "I Will Never Change"

UK director duo Us comes through with this amazingly creative animated vid Benga’s “I Will Never Change.” Created using 960 custom-cut pieces of vinyl, the team use stop-motion to create a living soundwave form that builds in response to the track. The bit is so good that it’s almost (but not quite) enough to make us like dubstep.

“To animate the wave form, we built it and then carefully removed each individual record,” they explained to Creative Review. “This had to be done very gently as any shift in the position of the sculpture would result in the failure of the animation and as we had to literally destroy each piece of vinyl to get it off, there was only one chance to get it right. Once the sculpture was finally built, the animation process took about 30 hours.”
