get into the glitch

Get into the Groove, by Madonna, stretched to an hour alongside a datamoshed version of the video.
This was a quick experiment to see how much of the process could be scripted from the commandline. The video was created without any editing software, an hour of content that no one has ever seen, created by a machine and uploaded to YouTube. The glacial pace allows us to see the beauty in each compression-distorted frame. Aesthetic decisions made blindly by an algorithm.
It has a surprising number of pleasing frames, and the audio reminds me of Voix Bulgares.
