    This ain’t April, right? That video clearly is manipulated and rather to be understood as a piece of motion graphic artistry.

    It’s not a real footage, they used sound-controlled CGI and 3D compositing to create these beautiful effects. Magnetic fields are still invisible. But this is great work.
