This is the official music video for Kanye West and Jay Z’s recent single ‘No Church in the Wild’. And I gotta say it, despite all the backlash Kanye just keeps putting stuff out there that is impossible not to pay attention to.

It’s a pencil celebration bitches. Everyone have a good time. This fun little retro throwback is the official video for ‘Pencil Revolution’ by SCHRADINOVA, taken from the album ‘India Lima Oscar Victor Echo You’.

I’ll be honest and admit that I don’t know how into the video I am but I do really like the song.

It’s always refreshing to see a simple concept done in a practical way using modern technology to generate an original result as is the case in the music video for BELL.

Visuals by Zach Lieberman, Francisco Zamorano, Andy Wallace, and Michelle Calabro.

(note: no post-production effects were used in this video. everything on the face is happening in real-time, via hacked Kinect, laptop and LED projector. It’s built using FaceTracker code from Jason Saragih)

This recent video for VHS or Beta was based on an original concept by Pixelfucks.

Director Graham Hill explains:

“Pixelfucks is a tumblr that was started early last year by a couple friends of mine as a diversion from their day jobs. The band saw the animated gifs and loved the aesthetic for the song. Pixelfucks then approached me and asked me to do the video.

Starting with the lyrics as a jumping off point, I knew we wanted to show the impacts and memories a relationship leaves on you—a physical representation of feelings. The question then was how to most simply visualize this and still push that odd off-kilter feeling in the imagery. Since it’s an age-old story, I decided to strip away all the context around our main characters and shoot only the essential elements on either a black or a white background.

So, after splashing blue paint all over the actors and squeezing them into a variety of skintight green and blue costumes, we took the footage and hammered out an edit. Using that edit as the foundation, we ran it through a crafty combination of keying, tracking and roto. Finally, applying a judicious mix of psychedelic patterns and color, we eventually arrived at the desired proportion of offbeat images and story.”

“Crystalline”, the new video by Bjork and directed by Michel Gondry is out. There are some cool moments in the piece but I’d have liked to see the stop motion pushed a bit further as well as see Bjork more integrated into environment.

Black Black Hills – “The Celebration” from Blac Ionica on Vimeo.

It’s a celebration bitches! Well this isn’t actually the kind of celebration you might want to be in attendance for. Here is a quote from the creative team involved with directing and producing the video, ‘The Celebration’ is a thematically and emotively dark sounding song. Because of this we wanted to tell a simple but very cinematic and gripping story focusing on the atmosphere of the track without being a literal translation of the lyrics.’ You can catch the rest of the right up here. The video was directed by Blac Ionica.

I cannot stop listening to Washed Out lately. Actually my entire studio keeps listening to Washed Out. It’s quite possibly some of the best music to create too that has been released in quite some time. I think you can catch the vibe via the video above.
