Before Eleven and the Falcons, there weres The Dynamite Kids. Formed at the dawn of 2008 in the sunshine and herb haze of Bath, North Carolina, these wintertime river banshees set about to fuse their mental dynamics with their physical child-like reality. An album emerged a year later in the bowels of New York. It was dubbed Blow Up! and myself faithfully crafted an ocular vision to parallel TDKs sonic vibrations. Oonjoy.
Vodpod videos no longer available.
After years of writing, making music, and taking photos, I have finally delved into the world of cinema in the past year. The majority of that work has been making music videos for various independent musicians and even making a few fan-videos for songs I love and want a visual component added to them. I’ve recently started uploading these videos to YouTube in order to spread them like a plague.
I created the above video about 6 months ago for MiLK jr. and his song “Animalistic” off the forthcoming album from Sexdad Records, I Had Another Dream. The song has an eerie and jarring quality to it, blending the operatic with the primal. The video mixes scenes of caged-wildlife, spontaneous and calculated street-performance, and strobing strange loops. Be wary of your mental state whilst you ingest this.
This video has been up for some time, but I felt it was fitting to post it along with the previous entry. Another artist from the Sexdad Records catalog, Florida-based musician All Father had me craft this piece for his song “Tip & A Bow” from his unreleased album Wisdom & War. The shifting colors and juxtaposing scenes of music, physicality, and destruction complement what has been described as “the aural version of a bad trip.”
Stay tuned to my YouTube channel as I’ll be uploading many more videos over the coming weeks.
