Don't Have Something? Improvise

Even though I'm no nearly as tech-savvy as I would love to be - I'm still trying to figure out how to use torrent sites - I'm genuinely amazed at how people use technology for ways that it normally isn't meant to.

Whether it be using old compuer hadware or circuit-bending a Speak and Spell into a fantastic new musical instrument, technology can evolve with a little push.

Here's a music video by Cesar Kuriyama that fits right in to what i'm talking about:

Eschewing a video camera, he took 45,000 photographs with a Nikon D200 DSLR (digital single-lens reflex) camera and stitched them together to create the illusion of video.

The music video was created for the band Fat City Reprise and premiered at their homecoming concert in Philadelphia.

Kuriyama says he directed the talent in the video to move as best they could in slow-motion while he had his director of photography Tommy Agriodimas shoot JPG bursts with the Nikon D200.

More here from Wired's Gadet Lab blog.

While the tracks is very much "college-radio-local-band" material, the video is quite impressive when you know how it was shot.
