Here are the latest videos we found and liked this week.
We begin with the latest from Jamie XX “Sleep Sound” with the message “Music is a medium formed by silence and sound.” a film by artist Sofia Mattioli, working with 13 members of the Manchester Deaf centre, who responded to the movement of the artist and the vibrations in the air given off by the song.
Then we have sweethearts Warpaint with their new dual-video for “Disco//Very – Keep it Healthy” directed by Laban Pheidias – featuring the girls dancing, having fun with a bunch of skaters, during the day and then late in the night.
A disco dancing mood from Hypnolove in “Beyond Paradise” featuring Puro Instinct – a very high-tech-old-egiptean-symbolistico-video, directed by Romain Ficat. This one is kinda NSFW, but a visual delight indeed.
Next, we have one of the hottest creative duos around – The GOASTT band of Sean Lennon and gorgeoux Charlotte Kemp Muhl performing “Animals”, directed by Rich Ragsdale. ”It’s a loving spoof of the Source Family, that infamous ’60s cult of polygamous vegetarian hippies. We shot it on 35 millimeter and were inspired by the surrealist aesthetics of Jowdorowsky and Kenneth Anger.”
In this new video by German house duo Booka Shade, director Ryan Staake takes 8 cameras into the sky, forming a 360 degree panoramic video to visualize the name of the track “Crossing Borders”:
Another interesting video is the one for “Becoming Harmonious” by The Glitch Mob feat. Metal Mother, directed and produced by Susie Sie, using water, a subwoofer, a Canon 5D and a 100mm macro lens.
Next, a sultry video by ADCN – “Siren” directed by Werner Damen in collaboration with Claudia Crobatia featuring the amazing & very sensual slow dance of Molly D’amour
We end this week’s selection with a fresh new cinematic retro-futuristic spin on the classic Pinocchio story, a post modern fairy tale about the limitations of using technology to battle loneliness – “We must be crazy” by Milow, directed by Norman Bates.
And there you have it, this week’s selection of videos for your viewing pleasure.
