music video premiere

2015 March

I am proud to present my first music video! I Felt Weird is now ready for you to stream below.

Maximilian Haslauer and Jonas Zieher created a mesmerizing handcrafted video for my track I Felt Weird from The Longest Year In History. While experimenting with moiré effects, Maximilian Haslauer and Jonas Zieher quickly discovered parallels with my musical work. Defined by Wikipedia as a “visually evident superimposed pattern created, for example, when two identical patterns on a flat or curved surface are overlaid while displaced or rotated a small amount from one another. (…) Moiré patterns are often an undesired artifact of images produced by various digital imaging and computer graphics techniques.” By manually moving printed patterns on transparent films the two designers consciously exploit this accidental effect. The footage was then edited digitally, retaining its organic feel to match the track’s sound. The result is a flickering audiovisual experience. Based in Stuttgart, South Germany, Maximilian Haslauer and Jonas Zieher study communcation design at the State Academy of Art and Design with a focus on image-making and illustration.
