SR Video of the Day: Pencil Pimp – Sepalcure
This week’s edition of Brooklyn’s hottest spa party When In Robe will feature Sepalcure, the nascent collaboration of Travis Stewart, known as Machinedrum and Praveen Sharma, aka Braille. Their video for “Pencil Pimp,” directed by Thor Erling Brenne, is perplexingly beautiful, a clash of surreal encounters and vivid digital animation. The set’s esoteric design curiously coincides with Sepalcure’s penetrating synth stabs and dissonant, reverberating melodies. As the rich soundscape becomes denser the video gets more and more bizarre, to extract a meaning feels wrong, this audio-visual experience speaks for itself.
Check out our preview of this week’s When In Robe and don’t miss one of Sepalcure’s creative, genre-spanning live sets. And don’t forget Jubilee and Subset will be in attendance as well, making this by far the best thing you could possibly do on a Sunday. Buy tickets here.
