Okay, it’s essentially a hi-tech screen saver, but it’s pretty to look at nonetheless. The computer animation is crisp and specific, even if it doesn’t show us anything relatable at a larger-than-cellular level. Without the images, the music would suffice- melancholy piano, ethereal wall-of-sound strings, and scatting sampled chanteuses are all the right ingredients.
