These bass emitters are plasma-filled. Or maybe they're filled with some kind of radioactive grape juice or something - I'm not sure. But anyway, they visualize the taurus bass pedals part.

It's amazing, but how can you exactly rate this or compare it to?
I only happened upon this IMDb citation by mistake, as I assumed that it was not listed on IMDb. This is because this direct to DVD production isn't really a movie or TV show and it's almost impossible to describe it adequately--you just need to see it for yourself.
This film was a project of some amazing computer programmers and musicians. Wonderful acoustic music with a modern ethereal quality was written and recorded--then set to the most amazing computer visuals. It was so well done that the first time I saw one of the segments (PBS here in Florida periodically show them as time filler), I thought perhaps the machine in the video was real. I kept staring and staring--trying to figure out what was and wasn't real! It was amazing and breathtaking.
I teach at an arts school and have used this as time filler on occasion as well. And in so many cases, these young people who watch it respond by saying that they would LOVE to one day work for the Animusic people. It truly inspired them.
By the way, if you like this, there is a second DVD--Animusic 2. It's not quite as good as the first, though a few of the segments are absolutely amazing. I'd give this second DVD a 9 (I particularly loved the Robots) and recommend you see and buy both!
