This Binary Universe[edit]

BT made seven music videos for each of the tracks off of his fifth studio album, This Binary Universe. Most of each of the videos is computer-animated, and each video lasts as long as the studio versions of each song, making them very lengthy. They can all be found on the DVD inside the physical release of This Binary Universe, and all of the videos were put onto iTunes not long after the release of the album. The track listing is:

  1. "All That Makes Us Human Continues" (8:16)
  2. "Dynamic Symmetry" (11:24)
  3. "The Internal Locus" (10:28)
  4. "1.618" (11:34)
  5. "See You on the Other Side" (14:24)
  6. "The Antikythera Mechanism" (10:06)
  7. "Good Morning Kaia" (8:12)

All songs released in 2006.
