Enjoying this music video featuring a ukulele-playing, maraca-shaking girl who rocks out pretty hardcore with the assistance of some spectacularly fun editing. After 3:00 she goes into overdrive and it gets a little tragic. We can only hope she’ll be reassembled for future techno goodness.
I’ve been wanting to do a post on “body architect” Lucy McRae for quite a while after discovering her somewhat creepy metallic skin and safety pin clips that explore the body’s relationship with artificial skins made from found objects. McRae makes her directorial debut in this carefully choreographed music video for the Australian band Rat vs Possum. (via your music today)
Sound designer and composer Diego Stocco (warning: lots of sound) continues his ongoing project of making music from uncommon objects and places with this new video using loops recorded from a local dry cleaner. Stocco has also made music from a tree, from sand, and even a a bonsai, among others. Of all of them I really think this is his finest. Make sure you make it past the 2:10 mark. (via neatorama)
A beautiful music video for Loose Fit by UK animator Abbie Stephens using an interesting subtractive technique where film stills were printed on standard printer paper and then carefully torn. From Vimeo:
Firstly a full days live action shoot took place. After a preliminary edit was locked down the movie was exported as an image sequence at 12 frames per second. Each frame was scaled and printed onto paper. 2’520 frames to be precise. Using 500ml of ink and refilling the ink cartridges about 12 times each. The printouts were then cut and torn and then stop frame animated using a rostrum camera. The animation was finally re-edited and colour corrected.
I usually like to give you a few screen shots to show what happens in a music video, but I can’t ruin the surprise for this one. The latest video for Best Coast directed by Daniel Garcia. (via cliptip)
