The video depicts Sean Bowie being arrested and assaulted by police officers on the streets of downtown Los Angeles, raising the widespread issue of police brutality in the USA.
Such magic is undoubtedly at work in today’s visual premiere. The footage set to ‘II’, a cut from Landon Speers’ exploratory ambient record ‘Wild Rose’, is not as much a music video as it is a kind of visual poem, its wordless meaning made audible in the achingly soft tones of Speers’ poignant composition.
American producer Bary Center shares his self-directed music video exclusively on IA – evoking the weird cult rituals of Eyes Wide Shut, kodachrome sorcery of Hausu and demoniac ambience of The Ninth Gate. Interlarded with cutaway shots of Bary himself, the dancers’ convulsive moves fit the rhythm and sound like a glove, mesmerising as can be.
We’re glad to bring you the exclusive stream of HMOT and MASSA’s eponymous visual piece – a dizzying 3D tableau blending disfigured virtual flesh and convulsive glitches, drawing out the Russian producer’s fractured, ectopic rhythms into an immersive realm of fear and trepidation where bodies collide, reel and disintegrate.
Illustrating the track’s pulsating rhythms with a convulsive black and white composition of rotating geometric shapes, abstract figures and IT glitches, Dybala’s piece makes for a much compelling, hypnotic visual collage that fits Chino’s music like a glove. Warning: this video can potentially trigger seizures for people with photosensitive epilepsy.
Sergie Rezza’s ‘Envolve’ is an absorbingly beautiful piece of visual abstraction that can best be described as a view through a microscope after a hefty dose of psilocybin – the perfect accompaniment to a track that leans towards the psychotropic, careening through blissful pads, heavenly atmospherics and nuanced rhythms on a 10-minute musical trip that ends all too soon.
