Avalon Emerson -Natural Impasse

All of the clips are from my personal phone video archive taken over the last half a year or so. I trimmed each video, turned them into gifs, and processed them into various emojisaic gifs using a ruby script created by my friend Lucas Mathis (github: @lilkraftwerk), then edited them all together using Adobe Premiere, a process that took me about two months.

Can’t stop what the Black Plot Design has done

Freedom of flight, eagle videos promoting wildlife conservation

Freedom's YouTube channel has more videos, including preparation of the flight, and a music video for Fritz Kalkbrenner's Void, shot on the borders of Lake Geneva with a guest role for Freedom’s Victor the Eagle.

Kanye being, well, Kanye

Kanye West has released the new music video for his song "Famous," (warning: explicit, NSFW) featuring disturbingly lifelike wax likenesses of celebrities lying next to eachother naked in a large bed. The celebrities? Taylor Swift, Donald Trump, George W. Bush, Chris Brown, Rihanna, Ray J, Caitlyn Jenner, Bill Cosby, Amber Rose, Anna Wintour, and, of course, Kim & Ye himself. The video has unsurprisingly garnered strong reactions. Kanye's equally unsurprising Twitter response? "Can somebody sue me already #I'llwait". [more inside]

"I've been doing this for fifteen years." — the choreographer

While OK Go's progression from treadmill to unicycle to zero-gravity has broken all kinds of ground in ambitious, creative, music video, the new video for LA band AJJ's Goodbye, Oh Goodbye takes the form to entirely new places. Planned and choreographed over the course of six months, and shot in a single take in an LA warehouse, the video centers around a judicious use of... well, it's best left unspoiled. (Here's a making-of video, for the curious.)

Twenty-something

Sometimes a music video completely recontextualizes the song. Pet Shop Boys' most recent single Twenty-something is one thing when you just hear the song, but the video makes it something else entirely.

Radiohead's new album hits the web

Five years after Radiohead's last album, myriad hints from the band marked May 1st -- Dawn Chorus Day -- as the date something big was gonna happen. The band ateased the web with rumours_of songs new and old, cryptic artwork, ominous mailers. But after years of waiting, nothing came... literally. Optimistic fans trying to pick up every last crumb_were left climbing up the walls_as they were shown how to disappear completely, with the band's official site and social media fading out again, slowly dissolving little by little, one by one, before their very eyes. It all came back Tuesday, as mysterious chirps and inkblots ushered in the sinister claymation music video for long-awaited track "Burn the Witch" [prev.], followed days later by an arresting P.T. Anderson-directed film for the somber elegy "Daydreaming." While Radiohead's ninth album is not here now physically till June, it's available for download come 8th May_(today!) at 2 PM EDT on Radiohead.com. It's gonna be a glorious day. [more inside]

The DJ eclipsed by his own Shadow

DJ Shadow will release his first album in five years, "The Mountain Will Fall", on June 24. A month ago, he shared the title track on Soundcloud; it was not met with the warmest of welcomes at FACT. In an interview with Pitchfork, Shadow, however, stated that "Sometimes records are a struggle. This record I knew exactly what I wanted to get across." Now we have the opportunity to watch the fresh official video for "The Mountain Will Fall", directed by Territory Studios' Marti Romances. (via; DJ Shadow previously)

Moving On: the story of a life passing, told in yellow yarn

The stop-motion animation video for James' "Moving On" is the story of a life passing, told in yellow yarn. BAFTA award winning Scottish animator Ainslie Henderson explains what inspired him: It’s 2014, and I’m on the phone to Tim [Booth, lead singer of James]. He is describing how the band came to write MOVING ON, and what the words mean to him. The story he tells me is deeply moving; one thing that stayed with me is his describing death as a birth. Days later this conversation echoes around my mind while I’m listening to the song as I walk past a typical Scottish woollen knitwear shop. My eyes flit over a ball of wool in the window while the word “unwinding” is sung....

Santigold: embracing the absurdity of current music consumption

Santigold is back with her third album, 99¢ (YT playlist), omnivorous pop in a post-genre age. She's been promoting the album throughout 2015, and enjoying the process this time around, trying to incorporate some of the joy from her son, Radek. She's been bending genres since her self-titled debut album, but this time around she's in a different place from her prior album, Master of My Make-Believe, which was fit for the dystopian end of the Age of Aquarius ... crackling with discontent, with a powerful cover designed by Kehinde Wiley (previously).

“Seduce The Milky Way”

Do you like uplifting monologues over drum beats and synths, intercut with shots of urban environments from different angles that follow a pedestrian? Then you might enjoy the video for Hieroglyphic Being and J.I.T.U Ahn-Sahm-Buhl’s “Fuck The Ghetto / Think About Outer Space”.
Hieroglyphic Being’s own story of overcoming homelessness in Chicago to become a successful experimental DJ was covered in a short documentary for Resident Advisor’s ORIGINS film series.

Cloudbusting

Everyone knows that “Wuthering Heights”, Kate Bush’s debut single of 1978, was inspired by Emily Brontë’s gothic tale of unfulfilled passion and madness on the moors. But how many people know how one boy’s relationship with his father, a disciple of Freud who fled Nazi-occupied Austria to pursue his studies on the orgasm in America, came to inspire another, similarly cherished piece of pop-culture history?

Imitation of Life - R.E.M. Deconstructed, reconstructed and stabilised

The music video for Imitation of Life by R.E.M. is a 20-odd second locked off shot, which they repeat forwards and backwards for the duration of the song. I wanted to see if they showed the whole wide 20 second shot throughout the music video. They don't. So I filled the gaps as best I could. I also then scaled and moved the whole video in order to watch how the video plays out. [The original video.]
