From a recent press release from the band:
“Now, just when their first video “Can’t Kill Us” surpasses 1 million views, the LA supergroup Justin Boreta, Ed Ma (EdIT) and Josh Mayer (Ooah) release the music video for the second single off of LDI, ‘Becoming Harmonious’ featuring vocals by Bay Area avant darkwave chanteuse Metal Mother.
“The Glitch Mob, known worldwide for their use of stunning and elaborate visuals to coincide with the music they create, chose to work with award-winning Director Susi Sie who created the video using the science and art of cymatics. Strictly applying analog techniques and refusing any computer animations or effects, Susi Sie’s haptic and detailed work is above all a highly personal study of the genuineness, perception and authenticity of things.
“In this manner, she harnesses the power of this beautiful scientific phenomenon to create scenes of stunning visual imagery, which flow seamlessly alongside The Glitch Mob’s pulsating rhythms and is the perfect compliment to Metal Mother’s eerie vocal display, and what EdIT refers to as “Both evil and angelic at the same time; it plays with your head.”
“When you watch the video you will find it hard to believe all the scenes were filmed using nothing more than lycopodium powder, a Canon 5D, a 100mm macro lens, two chairs, and a subwoofer. As each changing beat and vocal of ‘Becoming Harmonious’ resonates through the lycopodium, the powder takes on a variety of new and unique geometrics shapes. The ultimate result is a breath-taking kaleidoscope effect which transitions and moves to the music with harmonious precision. This video is a true piece of visual art, bringing to life the rawness and beauty that is ‘Becoming Harmonious’.”
