Headcandy - Brian Eno

   0 reviews  -  1053 views
    Headcandy is the name given to a series of kaleidoscopic, psychedelic videos, DVDs and CD-ROMs created by Chris Juul and Doug Jipson. Their second release was called "Headcandy with music from Brian Eno", featuring exclusive music just for this release.

    The concept of Headcandy is kaleidoscopic, psychedelic visuals set to music and viewed while wearing a 3-D style pair of prismatic glasses. The film covering the lenses of the glasses refracts white light into a prism of color. When viewing Headcandy in a dark room it turns the monitor into a gigantic wall of color kaleidoscopic visuals.

    All songs written by Brian Eno except "Manila Envelope" and "Beast" (Brian Eno/Robert Fripp).

    Headcandy brings us back full circle to the trippy light shows of the psychedelic '60s. Featuring a 30-minute dose of pleasing ambient/techno instrumentation (accessible via audio CD player or CD-ROM) courtesy of Brian Eno, the visual effects are multiplied throughout a darkened room by the refractive glasses included with the disc, similar to those cheapie cardboard 3-D movie throw-aways. Unless you must own everything that the prolific Mr. Eno has ever recorded, Headcandy makes an interesting one-time curiosity piece only, about as enduring as black light art. However, this might be practical software for those kind of parties where everyone is equipped with the requisite eyewear and fueled with mind-alterating substances. ~ Roch Parisien
