It's Friday, you still have paperwork to file and an afternoon meeting to prep for. What do you do? Play around on Nosaj Thing's new website.

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.
