Meischeid is a small animation by French director Matray.

3D primitives are displaced with various noise textures corresponding to different frequencies on the piano. The textures are animated by hand along to the music in After Effects. So, somewhat disappointingly, there is no music-driven procedural generation. But it is a beautiful interpretation of deconstructivist forms, and one which would lend itself naturally to automatic generation. I appreciate the use of simple polygons and particles as a material; ever since Pixar’s sub-pixel subdivision, digital animators have been trying to hide these basic building blocks of computer graphics. I also happen to be a freak about Blender, the 3D software used here.
