I’ve been enjoying the recent increase in videos being circulated for artists. Here are some examples:
Video is a great way to communicate complex information. It’s most like actually experiencing an event. This is because you can interpret 2 levels of information at the same time – what you see and what you hear. When you add time to that equation suddenly things start to become complex. Another way to look at it is by pure data file size – a big image is 1MB, and a song audio file is 10MB, and a 15 min video files is 100MB.
