You too can make a music video — by using Google search

Just find one image and let the search engine select the rest.

The concept is simple, but the effect is quite beautiful. The images seem carefully curated, but they were all found by performing a Google search, and put together in a simple slide show set to music.

For his short film Bliss, Daniel McKee created a lovely, seemingly coherent video, using what he calls a “Google Image domino.”

He helpfully provides instructions for making one:

  1. Reverse search an image by dropping it into Google.
  2. Select the next image from the results.
  3. Repeat.

Bliss is set to techno-pop, and the images come so fast and furious it has the effect of making you feel you’ve had too much coffee. The possibilities, however, are endless – Gregorian chants, Neil Young, Mozart, you name it. Start with any one image that appeals to you. Google will take care of the rest.
