Symphony of Science <- brilliant!

Some group has been remixing science documentaries into 5 minute autotuned music videos;

Aside from being funny, I find them strangely - and amazingly - inspirational.

Someone had posted about this in here before no?
(prolly in Funny Movies Around Web thread)
Anyway, yes, they're brilliant! Some are even catchy!

We are all connected is not only lyrically well assembled, but the images they've picked suits finely for a musical videoclip as well.

Oh yes, I love Symphony of Science! A Glorious Dawn and Ode to Brain are my personal favourites. The refrain where Jill Bolte Taylor comes in (Ode to Brain) always gives me the chills, and Carl Sagans "whoop" is priceless. The one with Alan Watts is quite wonderful as well.

I also recommend looking up his other music project, Colorpulse. Being a fan of ambient music myself, it's really quite nice. I think.
