Music video by Tarfilm

A new Periskop music video has been launched on YouTube. It is for the track “1 A. I (with Danish National Symphony Orchestra)” from the Periskop 40 LP.

It is made by the Copenhagen-based music video company Tarfilm, which has been going through countless hours of video archive material on Archive.org to gather fitting source material for the video.

The source material has then been cut into small clips, digitally improved and then pieced together in a visual composition fitting closely with the track. Tarfilm describes their thoughts behind the video like this: From the onset we decided to avoid incorporating a storyline as such, while still evoking tension and creating dramatic highlights, thereby keeping the emphasis on the music and try to contribute to its atmosphere through a flow of visual aesthetics and themes.

Tarfilm

Tarfilm is Jesper Roland and Kasper Møller Jensen, whom I both know from Aarhus University, where they got a degree in Film & Media. They have followed my music work closely, so when they recently moved to Copenhagen and set up a music video company, they were an obvious choice for the task of visually representing Periskop.

Very little communication between us was needed during the production of the video, and yet the result is completely satisfactory. In my opinion they have made a perfectly fitting visualization of the drama of the track while keeping very close to the core of the visual Periskop aesthetics.

No doubt this video works on a visceral level, and in this sense neatly contrasts the digital analysis-based Motorsaw video for 1 A. V (with Emil Brahe), which was released in February 2013.
