Domingae of Föllakzoid approached me to work with her on a visualization for a very abstract psychedelic piece with some high-concept ingredients that I wrestled with for a while before I decided to formulate the edited video we finally released.
I am in awe of what Arizona's "The Ephemeral" are doing musically right now. So much texture and depth and experimentation. I worked very hard to create a visual narrative and experience for their music...
The song "River Pig" by Euclid is full of memorable grooves and also has a fantastic breakdown, both experiences lending themselves to a sonic hellscape that the band had requested I attempt to portray as a reddish "Caelid-esque" (this is an Elden Ring reference that I had to look up) environment.
Go full color, in homage to dayglo shock colors of the 1980s, to do my part to help resurrect any dormant spirits of the formative era of thrash (no cheating making everything black and white!)
The band "The World Is Quiet Here" commissioned a video for their song "Writhing Gate" which is a truly wild sonic journey, vaguely progressive metal something something, with vocals in a range between Mike Patton (Mr. Bungle) and Will Ramos (Lorna Shore).
Getting to make this an official video for Meshuggah has been one of the biggest thrills of my life.
I worked with Antonio of the band Sphinx to translate some coral reef dive footage he took into a mind melting eldritch marine abomination for their track "The Old Ones".
