Sonic explorers Nathan Moody and HHNOI (a.k.a. Marco Petracca) have teamed up to produce Future Rituals, an evocative forthcoming collaborative full-length that bravely explores the depths and fringes of electronic music. What’s even more interesting is that all of the sounds are derived from a custom-built sound library crafted by Moody.
Ahead of the album’s release on June 14, we thrilled to world premiere the stunning music video for HHNOI’s “Long” directed by the talented American visual artist Rachel Palmer.
Palmer juxtaposes pulsating otherworldly animated lightscapes and syncs them with the track’s soaring synth lines and beats unfurl. Believe us when we say that it’s quite the cosmological spectacle to behold.
Palmer had this to say about process behind making the video: “Having performed live with HHNOI, I‘ve been fascinated by the organic and unpredictable quality found within the repetition of rhythms, melodies, and sequences made by modular synths. Similar organically evolving mutations of structures can be found in my visual art. My concept for ‘Long’ pairs the track’s aesthetics with audio-reactive particles dancing to its granular, yet solid nature, forming detailed and complex patterns: lively organisms flourishing on a dark canvas, similar to the music.”
