Animated Album Art

Though this is (apparently) a feature that Spotify has used for a few years now, I recently noticed that the album art for a few songs has shifted from a static image to using a video loop. I found this especially interesting given our recent work on Project 2, where we animated static storyboards into a video format. I think this development in technology has the potential to allow new creative formats to accompany music, which already has an amazing ability to resonate with people. I am interested to see if the dynamic nature of these animations will change how people perceive and listen to music in the future.
