Sounds for Datamoshing/Visual Flow Distortion

Purple Water is a brief experimental attempt at matching visuals made with the newly popularized techniques of visual flow/data mosh processing of video to an appropriate sound. Since this process tends to render fluidly distorting images, the sound of splashing water seemed like an obvious match and I found the results interesting.  

The video was made by processing clips of an old video of mine, Ipanemicenema, using an adapted version of one of Andrew Benson's hsflow distortion patches for Max/Jitter. The sound was chopped and composed in Ableton Live, which is in turn sending OSC timecode information through my custom made Pluggo Plugin to Max in order to chop the video footage in the same linear way that the original audio piece was chopped and rearranged.
