Yesterday, Nosaj Thing
released the new video for “Eclipse/Blue” -
his most recent single/release,
which features the vocals
of Kazu Makino of Blonde Redhead -
and, its worth noting,
is a completely new entity from
the previously posted teaser video
of the same song.
Produced as a part of the VICE-funded, Creators Project,
the group added this insight to how the
unique concept of the video came about:
We first got the chance to ascend into Nosaj Thing‘s sonic dreamworld at our The Creators Project: New York 2011, where he performed alongside some fittingly fantastical installations like Zigelbaum + Coelho’s Six-Forty by Four-Eighty and Team Dis-Kinect‘s motion-mimicking puppet. Engaged in a subtle dance with his MPD32, Nosaj wove together a pounding, wistful set before projected visuals. As surreal as that live experience was, its visual component is nothing compared to what technology artist Daito Manabe has accomplished for Nosaj Thing’s “Eclipse/Blue.”
With support from The Creators Project, and collaborating with Perfume choreographer MIKIKO, Manabe created a dynamic virtual environment to serve as the backdrop for two dancers whose movements across the stage are amplified by the graphics behind them, making each action feel larger and more emotive.
With that said,
