Holy Shit, Technology: Black MIDI Magic

by Paddy Johnson on September 27, 2013

The frantic pace of digital life has given birth to a music genre. It’s called “black MIDI”, because the visualization in a midi file– which can carry multiple channels of electronic information– is so packed with waveforms that it’s almost entirely blacked out. You end up with a pulsing electronic symphony so powerful that you have to go holy shit, technology.

We’ve all had our share of internet soundboards, but this one is better than any other we’ve seen in our history of forever. Let us present The Rap Board, your home for iconic rap sound bites that range from the Gucci Mane “yeaaa!” to the Lil Jon “YYEAA-YUH”.

On the other hand, Will Smith has more sounds on this board than Kanye West, which really isn’t fair given the range of weird noises that grace Yeezus. We all need to complain to the Internet Gods over that injustice.

Anyone else have something they really want to put off for the next five minutes? Here: watch countless man-made and natural materials get garbled to the tune of an 80′s gay porn sound track. This wood-chipper isn’t particularly therapeutic or addictive, but I watched it at work anyway. And then I read the metafilter thread. That’s the way I roll.

Who knew poodle hair mutability could match that of the We Network’s Amazing Wedding Cakes? Sandy Paws, an award-winning poodle groomer (that’s a title you can have, now), had this vision, transforming her pet poodle/mascot Cindy into… just about everything.  Garden snails not your thing?
