Watch Vinyl Williams' 'Higher Worlds' video, taken from the debut album 'Lemniscate', released 12th November through No Pain In Pop.
What's the clip all about? Here's Vinyl Williams to explain:
“The images in ‘Higher Worlds’ are made up of various religious aspects to form an idea of what it looks like to experience something extra-sensory, beyond the very limited one octave of our visual spectrum. The effect is amplified by degenerative processes, such as filming my computer screen as I’m building these 3D worlds, then transferring the footage of this digital environment into an analog composite signal, onto VHS, taking the VHS machine on a roller coaster as it’s laying over in real-time, to encounter natural distortions and imperfections.
In a similar way, the 3D models I was working with in Cinema 4D, Google Sketchup and After Effects were such big files that I couldn’t really realize the end result until an export was made, which always ended up surprising me. Through this project’s imperfections and fuzz, I feel like it created itself. The video has an intense amount of exotic imagery—perhaps because other spectrums of sensation are so in-between and unknown that to express it would be to attach it to the most tropical, vast, exotic dreamscape one could ever imagine. I obviously link it to something like teal treasure temples in a space lounge rainforest.”
