Today's Boing Boing Video episode is an ambient piece by animator/filmmaker Bob Jaroc and the band Plaid.
"War Dialer," which references phone phreaking and early proto-hackery through a non-narrative, droning flow of sound and speech-babble, was originally created as an 8-channel audio-only installation in a bandstand on Brighton seafront as part of the Sonic Sea Air project, ten years ago.
Jaroc says, "Plaid and i began to use it as a visual piece around the time we started to play surround sound gigs, as it served as a good visual and sonic introduction to the idea that the images on screen were related to the spacial audio."
I suggest replaying the piece in the background a few times, and droning out to it while you work.
Music taken from Plaid's Greedy Baby album, which you can buy here.
