Video description
Why Christopher Nolan is obsessed with Shepard tones.

Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO

Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk is a nerve-wracking movie. Three separate storylines tell the tale of the famed World War II evacuation in a intense two hours of film. A lot of that feeling has to do with how the film's score uses Shepard tones — layered sound waves that simulate a constant ascent in tone — to create a sensation of building tension. They're a personal favorite trick of Nolan's: he's based sound effects and entire soundtracks with other composers on the auory illusion. In Dunkirk, composer Hans Zimmer crafted his soundtrack around the effect — and it's an auory masterpiece.

7 Times Dunkirk Got History All Wrong

If you're new, Subscribe! → http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-Looper Based on the real-life Operation Dynamo, Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk follows the evacuation of over 300,000 soldiers from a French beach in the opening stages of WWII. Visually, it's a masterpiece, and one of the most unique wartime films to date. And for the most part, the movie sticks religiously to the facts, taking inspiration from actual wartime photos to frame the action. Even that weird-looking sailboat at the end was there. But it doesn't get everything right. Here are all the ways Dunkirk lied about those historical events... Nazi nose cones | 0:28 French destroyer | 0:58 Farrier's...

The secret rhythm behind Radiohead's "Videotape"

Welcome to Vox Pop: Earworm! In my first episode of Earworm, I speak with Warren Lain. He's a Radiohead fan who also happens to be an incredibly talented musician and music teacher. In December 2016 he uploaded a 38 minute video to YouTube about a Radiohead song that I deeply love, "Videotape." He had been thinking about the music theory behind this seemingly simple song for the better part of a decade. The reason? “Videotape”, a slow rhythmically monotonous song, is actually syncopated. I’m joined also by Erin Barra, a professor at Berklee College of Music, who helped Warren and I...
