What tale will be told of us when we are gone? Only time will tell.
This is the visualizer and lyric video for "Our Tale Will Be Told", a psychedelic alt-rock / indie-rock song by Danny Sullivan. With plenty of swirling guitars and percussion, this psych rock tune will transport you across time and space.
At every moment we are marching towards the future. We each have the power to change the path. What we can't control are the tales told about us by others, especially once we are gone. People who were considered great during their time periods may be looked upon as villains from a future perspective. And vice versa. The stories that are told rarely capture the full truth. We must not take the stories we are told at face value.

This is perhaps my first of many high-quality music videos to come in the future. I had a lot of fun making this video and messing with the effects. I hope you'll give me some feedback in the comments! I plan to only make better and better music videos without an amateurish DIY aesthetic.
As for the song, it started as a Rhodes piano melody. A little bit of vibing and dancing was my goal (the goal was achieved). I needed a quick introduction to get people interested so I brought in the heavy toms and EQ sweep to start things off. The inspiration for the tom intro came from Poolside's "Do You Believe?", which I first fell in love with when I heard it in GTA 5 many years ago.
Once the basic melodic structure was sorted out, I worked on the drum samples. I wanted something bright and bouncy, that would move the song along and keep it interesting. I did a lot of panning on the percussion and cymbals to give it a sort of swirly effect. All the movement definitely added to the vibe, I think. I'm proud of how the drums turned out. Crisp, yet not too present as to take away from the rest of the instrumentation.
I thickened up the chorus with some simple guitar riffs repeated over and over and drenched in effects. They essentially acted as rhythm instruments like drums. Of course, I threw some more panning on them to add more movement. Basically, I wanted people who listened to this song to physically be unable to sit still. Feet will tap. Heads will bob. Bodies will move. That's the goal at least!
