A new fangled video for "Chameleon".

At the end of October last year, the camera manufacturer Canon held a launch party for its new printer model, the Pixma Pro-1. While some were psyched to see some of the new 1D-X cameras on display, others were excited for a performance from Herbie Hancock, though the two are not mutually exclusive.


As part of the evening, Hancock’s performance of “Chameleon” was captured, in photograph form, with cameras lent to various attendees (“crowd sourced”) and hung from the ceiling to be spliced together to create a “stop motion” music video (which of course features the printer). The result is interesting to say the least and is presented here for your viewing pleasure.
