The video doesn't have any particular intention, but to have a placeholder image to the music. I converted the whole Reaper file into midi events, customized them for visual purposes and fed them to the Maschine controller, so it displays the events in sync with the song.
I used Cockos Reaper as the main DAW, using Maschine for most of the sample handling.
