Instrumental Video Nine
Mike Winkelmann describes "Instrumental Video Nine" as simple machines working together to create music, but it's anything but; we for one welcome our musical robot overlords.

In 2003 he wrote a paper that kind of details the tenets of what his style is - "Instrumental Video for Instrumental Music" - which kind of goes over the idea of animating EVERY note/instrument for a piece of music to create a video that is totally synced: "To be honest I would be very, very happy to see people make similiar works and to see instrumental video take off as a style."

"I had these internal questions for a while-should the video by synced to the kick drum, or the snare, or the melody? When I finally realized that it would be much easier and cooler if EVERYTHING was synced, it was kind of a revelation to me and I wrote that paper. I have been making video that adheres to it ever since, and probably will be for quite some time," says Mike Winkelmann.
