Who knew alien beings made from light loved to tickle the keys so beautifully? Artist Ryan Cashman has put together a fantastic video that will brighten your day, as only a piano-playing extraterrestrial can.This was filmed in San Diego, and if you're wondering how he did it:

I wrote the music and recorded it first. The frames were photographed with a Canon Rebel using 20-30 second exposure time. I used a small green LED keychain light to draw each frame. Once all the positions were photographed they were strung together and synchronized to the music in After Effects.
