Yugo Nakamura is one of the most famous digital designers in the world. In his latest project, The Origin of the Sound of the Rain, he wanted to prove that a single drop of water sampled and reproduced a million times would actually sound like rain. And it really does.
For his experiment he used the sound of an individual water drop falling on a variety of surfaces including dirt, glass, wood, a leaf, and a snail.
The video was created for the TV Program TECHNE, which gives a behind-the-scenes look at the creative techniques employed by the motion graphics industry.
