This music video is a slow burner, but once you get two minutes in (and begin wincing at the amount of grass burn this guy must have gotten shooting this video), it gets interesting.
The Berlin-based group used an imprecise process to capture the images needed to create 3D models of the featured character in this series of surreal vignettes. The resulting vagueness of detail is a suitable accompaniment to such an eccentric track.
A Koan is a philosophical Zen question or comment meant to provoke deep thought. Here, the particular strain of Buddhism inspires composer Daniel Mulhern and artist Daniel Højlund to create a unique piece of art.
Concept is king in this one! Here are three music videos all packed into one visual. Switch the track and it’s a whole new video.
Violently seductive, the rich enigma of the protagonist and her mission amidst the near-future Mad-Maxian metropolis feels so deep and detailed that the undiscovered tendrils of narrative tumbling in the wake of such presence are inevitable. I bet I’m not the only one who would like to see an expansion or adaptation of this piece.
Loops! They’re the meaningless nonsense words that flutter through our video landscape. They’re the Seussical-ization of pop culture. In other words, they’re fun! This music video uses the video loop structure but flips it on it’s head and returns it to the “live” environment from whence it came. Rinse and repeat.
We’ve shared some audio-physical experiments before, you know the ones where the tray of sand sitting on a speaker vibrates in oddly beautiful ways as musicians rock out. Well… now there’s this fabulous addition to the cymatics mix. Amazing!
The moody black and blue video features a transient performer who appears to be solid, taught, and flexible one moment but is interrupted by crystalline intrusions and dissipates into elemental overlays in the next.
A cold, unfeeling other-world and a disinterested ingenue become captivating, nay endearing, as each undulating scene unfurls. The German IDM duo Funkstörung is known for their appreciation of great graphic design and the sophisticated taste of visual aficionados is proudly embraced in this churlish video.
