One thing that drew me into the series is the music. The pieces selected were just perfect for the wonder inspired by the oddity of seeing objects react in the slow-mo environment of the videos. I've loved every piece of music so far & have been listening to the half-dozen tracks I've downloaded on a continuous loop for a couple days.
It helps that I love this type of music anyway; varied, electronic & melodic, with a touch of quirk. So I did some searching & found the following about Younnat, the composer of the music used in the Daily Drop so far:
Younnat's YouTube page wrote:Younnat - is not a DJ, though he is alone on the stage, and not an orchestra, although he uses a great number of unusual instruments. Younnat -- is Oleg Serdyuk's solo electronic project of keyboard player of the Lyuk band [Ukraine].
In his performance he uses various unusual electronic devices like speed wheel, joystick, gamepad, desktop keyboard and some handmade controllers.
You can download the tracks used in the series on The Escapist here. The main theme is known as Old Movies Not Terrible
More music available at his website. He's also on MySpace, LastFM, etc.
So is it just me that is crazy about this guy's music or does it have this effect on everyone?
No, I am not a shill. I just love the music.
