This morning, the producer (who's real name is Jason Chung) unveiled a new website in anticipation for Chung's new EP, NO REALITY. On the site, tracks from the record play in perpetuation as a spirograph of sound waves, formant shifts, and dotted funnel-like passages wind around the screen. Holding down the mousepad, you can drag lines into different shapes, from black hole-like donuts to cascading waves. By pressing the big "NO REALITY" sign in the center of the screen, the track skips to the next one, and the forms reset to a place of rest. There's a less interactive, but no less interesting visual component to the information page that you can visit by clicking on a link in the upper-left corner of the landing page.
In a statement for the press release, the site's designer Ben Wegscheider said: "I focused on creating dynamic visuals that support the vibe of [Chung's] new EP to create an immersive experience for the audience. It's a trip through NO REALITY audio waves."
Next week, Nosaj Thing will embark on a short audio-visual tour with longtime visual collaborator Daito Manabe. Visit and play with the page here and watch the aforementioned videos below the tour dates.
