Something i do a lot when i want to explore unknown/new animations is to search a piece i recently make, (because we always look back what we did to learn from it too) or search for something special that took my feelings/attention and take that as a reference point. Then i put a song (whatever i'm atm because you thought on that). The brain starts to associate the sound/visuals and the story opens with new passages or instances.
I bring this because music needs his visuals as visuals are deeply influenced by the music.
Recently did an animated cover for a musician which i really listen almost everyday and we made the new art and an animated version. Was a great fusion. Hopefully uploading here soon.
