A video for Blaster by New York based conceptual artist James Hoff on PAN Records. Blaster is a document of his explorations of computer viruses as agents within the composition process. Hoff used the Blaster virus to infect 808 beats and then utilized the mutated results as sonic building blocks.
This video exactingly deconstructs a previous video work and repurposes it into a new composition using velocity pass render elements with each colour representing degrees of movement in an X,Y,Z space.
Blaster was a Vimeo Staff Pick in September 2014

While running things with Night Slugs, Alex Sushon - aka Bok Bok - has built an unmistakable aesthetic that relies on meticulously precise, clean imagery that comes with a dose of chaos. His latest video, for the Kelela-featuring jagged funk jam “Melba’s Call”, runs wild with this theme, ending up being more about what’s not there than what is. Pristine equipment sits untouched, the lead vocalist appears via Skype from LA and sprawling jungle greenery sits at the heart of the image, cruelly encased in glass. The world Sushon’s created doesn’t really have any people in it – just plants, technology, and digital interfaces – but it’s magnetic. Step inside it via the hi-def details in our exclusive gallery, and read Sushon’s own take below.

The film for Actress IWAAD is an attempt to present something obviously digital in a more incomplete processed state, linking aesthetically with the looping sonic haze and relentless pressure of the music.
Actress has described his music as ‘reverse decay’ and this film builds up a landscape from the basic parts and processes of digital media. The rendering process becomes the raw footage that is once again is filmed and edited to become human.
