Ian Chang: “Spiritual Leader” Video

Sep 23, 2016

Ever wanted a window of observation into the mind of a percussionist? The new dazzling (and dizzying) video from Son Lux/Landlady drummer Ian Chang and directed by Endless Endless is a display of the cerebral cortex at work. On Funhouse's Sensory Percussion set, Chang throws brain to body signaling in reverse and back out to an arrangement of lights triggered by his drum strokes of improv genius. By Charles Steinberg

Jamie Lidell: “Walk Right Back” Video

Sep 20, 2016

Jamie Lidell debuted the latest video, "Walk Right Back," from his upcoming album, Building a Beginning via NPR today. Directed by Leo Lyxxx, the animated video is an abstract representation of a child's first memories through morphing illustrations. Lidell's new son, Julian, is the centerpiece for Building a Beginning in a lot of ways, as well as being the inspiration for the conversations between Lidell and Lynxxx from which the ideas for the video were gleaned. Set for release on October 14th, Building a Beginningis Lidell's first on his own Jajulin Records, a portmanteau of his, Julian's, and his wife's names. By Lily Moayeri
