Wave Twisters is an eye-popping, hip-hop-meets-Hanna-Barbera, animated adventure synched skratch for skratch with DJ Qbert's turntable masterpiece of the same name. Each track of Qbert's original album was designed to provide the audio framework for another chapter in this sci-fi/kung-fu epic; every aspect of the story - music, sound effects, even dialogue - has been accounted for and seamlessly integrated into Qbert's original musical compositions. Wave Twisters gives visual expression to Qbert's narrative while pioneering the concept of visual skratching; sampling from a wide variety of techniques (from traditional cell animation to 3D to live action to photo collage), Wave Twisters defines a unique visual style analogous to the supercharged cutting and skratching of a turntable DJ. Wave Twisters catapults the bar on the correspondence between sound and image, taking the Fantasia concept to the next, dizzying level. When the music says, "Jump!" the animation asks, "How high?"
If you're looking for a great story with a coherent narrative it probably won't be here. If you looking for some great music and graffiti-esque art styles this is the place to find it. Some of the best of the best are included in the project. It is a fun flick.
Finally got this on ITunes!
Aah yeah! Wave Twisters 2 coming soon!
Do yourself a favor and buy this. It's 4.99 and it is sooo good. If you even kind of like turntablism, this is a must own. Thanks for the great music Qbert, looking forward to the 2nd Wave!
