The music video was shot in the south west of France on the Cap-Ferret peninsula, where the Dune du Pyla sits surrounded by pine forests and the Atlantic Ocean. As a part of the world where the record was written, Moore and Cros felt this was the perfect setting for the video. However, Cros explains that travelling to the location for filming was a hazardous experience:
“When we went there, the coast was on red alert, a violent windstorm blew over the site for 48 hours. Winds gusting above 90mph, so strongly that we could not even look straight up, sand blasting the lenses, a total chaos in a deserted place. We had to adapt to these conditions, finding breaks of quiet weather to improvise with the spectacle of nature.”
Established in 2006, Bing & Ruth is an ever-evolving collective steered by composer David Moore. A pianist from Kansas and graduate of New York’s school of Jazz and Contemporary Music at the New School, Moore’s work follows in the great tradition of fellow alumni John Cage and Steve Reich, albeit looking past the more studied repetition of the style’s forerunners toward a meditative form built on feeling.
Bing & Ruth ‘No Home For The Mind’ is scheduled for release 17th February 2017, order a copy here.
