'Last of all Húrin stood alone. Then he cast aside his shield, and wielded an axe two-handed; and it is sung that the axe smoked in the black blood of the troll-guard of Gothmog until it withered, and each time that he slew Húrin cried: 'Aurë entuluva! Day shall come again!’ Seventy times he uttered that cry, but they took him at last alive…’ - Of the Fifth Battle, The Silmarillion.
'Thus ended Beleg Strongbow, truest of friends, greatest in skull of all that harboured in the woods of Beleriand in the Elder Days, at the hand of he whom he most loved; and that grief was graven on the face of Túrin and never faded.' - Of Túrin Turambar, The Silmarillion.

BECHA-KPACHA is an algorithmic music video for the electronic musician COH. The song’s tittle (pronounced Vesna Krasna) was taken from an old Russian poem and roughly translates “Spring the beautiful”, though it can also mean “Spring the red.”
The animation reference’s traditional Russian folk patterns, commonly known as Hohloma. In these patterns, colorful plant leaves expand and twist around one another while fruit grows along side. These patterns were a starting point for this sound-responsive animation.
