For Your Eyes and Ears: Volcano Choir on New Music Weekly

Engulf yourself in a forest of sound with this week’s New Music Weekly video. We paired the track “Dancepack” by Volcano Choir, a project from Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, with production crew Wolf & Crow and artist Chad Howitt to create an artificial world of real artistry:

"I grew up in a small town called Los Angeles, where my first job was at a record store. I've worked with people who moved here from other places, and watched their hopes and dreams get crushed by the city, turning them inside out. This was my inspiration.

Also, because we have minimal amounts of nature here, I thought it best we recreate it on the computer. Live action casting for stag beetles didn't go very well at all. There were also issues with trying to put lights inside of them."
