For Your Eyes and Ears: alt-J on New Music Weekly

 

It may be Thanksgiving this week, but alt-J’s new Summer Remix EP feels perfectly timed. The new EP compiles remixes by Jim James, Dave Sitek, Ben Lovett, The Internet of Odd Future, Hanz, and Ben De Vries. We are especially excited about the treatment “Dissolve Me” (Ben Lovett Remix) gets in this week’s extended-length New Music Weekly video. Where does your mind go when you listen and watch? Video Artist Oskar Wrangö tells the story of this week’s motion art:

"Great music always takes my imagination to new and interesting places. With this song Dissolve Me, I envisioned a fragile and special visual character. We embodied chemical substances and created something we have never seen before. It was also important for the narration to give this character a context as a strong contrast to it's appearance. Contrasts, form and color are always very important to me. Special things happen when music meet images, something bigger can appear if you are lucky. This short piece is an open story."
