From the author:

鈥渁 little animation project i started this past weekend, inspired by the wonderful music of Olafur Arnalds. the song is called Lj贸si冒, and you can listen to it at:鈥

On how he made it:

鈥渋 first imported the audio and set up 2 sounkeys layers, one for the piano and one for the strings. Then i worked the particles and the particle subsystem and linked things like the emission, the turbulence, the velocity, the spin amplitude and the strenght of the fields to the soundkeys outputs. Then i set up the colors with 2 different palettes, and well, after that there was a lot of trial and error in order to achieve what i was looking for. There鈥檚 a lot of randomness involved in here, so there was also a lot of luck, of course.鈥
