Laurence Pike and visual artist Clemens Habicht continue their fruitful working relationship with a new video for ‘Ember’. Taken from the album Prophecy, which was recorded in response to the recent wild fires that devastated Australia, the track sees Pike weave his muted magic on drum kit, between triggered piano and vocal samples.
“The video accompaniment to ‘Ember’ is an evolution of the methodology established in previous collaborations on ‘Drum Chant’ and ‘Nero’” explains Habicht. “The shapes in motion again resemble print making abstractions of form that visually parallel Laurence’s exploratory music. This video departs from a direct musical synchronicity of image and sound and captures another type of internal notation, using motion from an activity outside of performance.”
Prophecy is available now on limited edition yellow vinyl, CD and digital.
There is also an EP accompaniment to the album entitled Destiny, which is available to download exclusively on Bandcamp on a pay-what-you feel basis.
