Vessel

Posted by Alex


This is the incredible video for Four Tet’s remix of Vessel by Jon Hopkins. Not only is it mega weird in the most perfect way, but it really suits the song perfectly. Hypnotic to say the least. I love it when the dancers are on a really short repeat loop: the shots between 00:16-00:45 and the very last are my favorite.

It’s been a while since I’ve seen a video synced with music in such an interesting way. This was probably the last time.

Kind of reminds me of Rubber Johnny in a weird sort of way. But much more likely to induce pleasant dreams rather than freakish nightmares.

Okay, a curse word is appropriate for this one.. This is fucking good stuff!
Great song, and the direction of the video elevates it even more.
I love the “stop and slow” movement of the dancers!
Very nice!

It has a lot in common with this recent Tricil video, which I adore:

The contrast of the elegance of the ballet moves and the very cut-up editing is really beautiful. I’m less entranced by the close-up face work towards the end (which, going back up to what Topher said above, is a little too Rubber Johnny), but overall its another great addition to the dance/music video fusion.

Wow, this video IS great. and Matt, you’re totally right. very similar.

Something about cut up dancing chicks and glitchy beats just go hand in hand =)

It goes without saying thanks for linking to my video, and Zach, I’m unsure if you’re looking for my track or the four tet one, but i’m selling the track and the video for just $2 at http://tricil.net if you’re interested (apologies if i misunderstood you).

Thanks again, Matt! =)
