Note by Walter: The “UMI” video is based on nonlinear algorithms whose development spanned over several years. The aim was to generate a movement that would, like a waving corn field or a moving water surface, promote introspection and contemplation in the viewer. Originally, the accompanying sound was also made by me, and it was designed to support this attribute of the video. In this form (http://vimeo.com/dextroorg/064cde), it became the most popular video on Dextro.org. I never intended to make another sound version. It is solely thanks to the quality of Theo Calis' and Martin Hoogeboom's track that I agreed, without hesitation, to do it nonetheless following their suggestion.
