Here is Shift Hop, a Starcadian music video I have been slaving over for the past few weeks. It is another chapter in my ongoing project, Tales from the Sixth Sun.
The more psychedelic visuals come from my experience with audio-visual synesthesia, a condition where sounds and music present themselves as forms, motion, and color.
BUT THE REALLY EXCITING PART IS that this video (along with some longer, reformatted versions) will be playing on a HUGE screen at BONAROO music festival in june! I’m so stoked to see it and I hope some of you, my beautiful (and surprisingly numerous) followers, will be there and see it in action.
Be sure to check out Starcadian’s other stuff, he’s awesome!
Starcadian is life.
Yoshitaka Amano’s 2006 collaboration with Neil Gaiman and David Bowie - I wanted to make the story about David Bowie coming to the city of New York. Iman is the queen, and she’s waiting for the Duke to rescue her, and she’s been waiting for a thousand years. But when I told that to Iman, she said that in real life that would never happen. [Laughs] She’d never wait that long.
