>ZEN TV DVD
That's where i took, very nice DVD
Yes, back in the high school when i downloaded their albums released in the early years it also became my favorite label, after years i still hear some of them regularly.
They were heavily into visual aesthetics too, usually cover art from Amon Tobin or Mr. Scuff would feature art styles that would be identified solely with them. In terms of music videos things would be more experimental, ironically enough for my good/bad luck i discovered Neotropic
just a long time later due to her video for Sunflower Girl
, i already knew the 15 Levels of Magnification album which was a favorite but never bothered checking the rest because i didn't really like Mr. Brubakers' Strawberry Alarm Clock, which is considered her very best, honestly is the one i least like, the rest are in my opinion superior in 15 levels
Her story is quite interesting, at one point she experimented with film camera with old stock and/or a compromised body with slight light leaks and made some stuff that resembles the nostalgic polaroid/70's home movie aesthetic that would come later in popularity around the late 00's, again as with many Ninja Tune artists she was slightly ahead and i think did a short movie about that around 1999 to 2000, this video is an excerpt of it i believe. Not much going but it has its charm, especially when photography circles these last years have been trying to mimic the same style.
From my part i think i have a plan to gather some stuff, but it would be a one-time hit so i need to gather as much information as i can to download extensively for a couple of weeks. My plan was continuing researching by director, make a list, and wait for the moment; for it to be worthwhile i will like to cover the vast majority of big-timer creators and at least a dozen obscure ones. This will take months and i hope to just start posting about them when i have the catalogue so i hope we can live with a few readily available examples of one-shots or short-lived ventures. In this case with Coldcut
they made their own videos so double merit for them, usually the musician will at most suggest an idea or art style, the rest of the technical matter is stricly the director's unless you are Fred Durst
