angles-moire video on YouTube

I’ve put up a new Venus Vulture video on YouTube . It’s a more blocky thing than the earlier videos, with some drum patterns built across the drifty soundscape.

Moire patterns (there’s an acute over the e, and I guess there’s some way to put that on here, but I can’t figure it) are interference patterns created by intersecting sets of lines – say when you’re passing a wire fence and the lines of another fence beyond interact to create highlights and lowlights. In the video the striations on the blocks seem to bend a flicker a little as the pixels of the image can’t quite manage to show the details. Some artifacts from various compressions through the process, but still intriguing.
