File Under Water


The girl with the arm-stilts pops the pillow-bubble releasing the underwater horse... floating mermaids dance... jackhammer-boy explores the sunken ship. No, it's not a Dali fairy tale, it's one of several possible _plots_ auto-generated by the ambient Flash film _Infrasound._ Discrete environments, characters, and objects are constantly shuffled according to subtle algorithms, creating on-the-fly narratives that vary each visit. Gorgeous illustrations by crankbunny and an evocative soundtrack by members of Mogwai make Infrasound a high-bandwidth experience worth waiting for. (Free CD-ROM can be ordered too). - Curt Cloninger
