    I think if I was gonna see Led Zeppelin I’d prefer to see them the way they’d performed 40 years ago in classic 70′s arena rock light-show style. But if we’re gonna bring this performance into the new millenium then I love the animation. Behind the band all huge and awesome? yessss

    This is awesome, considering how huge it would be stretching across the whole stage. To take it to the next level, it would have been incredible to synch up some of the key transitions and animation elements to the beat of the song.

    Anyone notice the satanic goat’s head at 2:20? As my evangelist 10th grade biology teacher might have said, thirty years later and Led Zeppelin are still knights in satan’s service.

    I have done animation to accompany live music,
    and its a lot hard than mohave might think, because the timing will never be the same two nights in a row, you need to find a way to follow the music loosely, without requiring a tight sync.
    You also don’t want to dominate, but rather enhance, I think this animation achieves these things really well

    Love the slow pace of the graphics to compliment the song’s tempo and mood. Better than Floyd. 3-D would take it even higher. The proper technology, programming and stagecraft would allow for improvisation.

    The illustration is too symmetrical for my taste, but does seem to parallel the song’s ponderous, plodding aspects. Which is not at all meant to be a total put down of either. They each have their good points, in a ham handed way. They chug along together in grandiose fashion. That bombast is often part of Led Zep’s charm I suppose. Speaking of bombast, I’d better cut it here!

    mojave, post us a link to your demo reel.

    Nice! DMT much?

  18. Johnny One Spur says:

    Does this mean the band can’t improvise or jam or extend the song significantly? That’d be a shame…

    I wish I was high right now.

    Well, I must be a full blown kitten then. I saw the Pink Floyd – Pulse show at Earls Court and recall (vaguely) being in a daze for weeks after. It is still one of THE most awesome concerts I have been to…

    Not bad. Always one of my all-time fav. songs. I could’ve done better animation though.

    Rathergood.com did much better with LZ’s “Immigrant Song”. :)
