Memory Vague compiles music videos sourced from YouTube videos and edited by Lopatin in Windows Movie Maker.[2] It collects several videos previously uploaded to YouTube via Lopatin's sunsetcorp channel, including the profile-raising videos "Angel" and "Nobody Here."[3] The DVD features several of Lopatin's "eccojams": audio-visual pieces which typically sample micro-excerpts of 80's sources and "slow them down narcotically" with effects such as echo and pitch shifting added in a manner reminiscent of chopped and screwed styles.[4][5]
