Ian Chang shares new video 'Zoetrope' today!
Today Ian Chang has shared a new track and video from his debut album, ‘属 Belonging’, which is set for physical release next week, on May 29th via City Slang. The record received a digital release last month, and will be available on CD and vinyl, including a limited edition vinyl edition, from next Friday - details here.
"Zoetrope" sees Chang's crunching beats accompanied with evocative visuals by artist Luigi Honorat. Using visual forms programmed to be triggered by the track's original stems, the video reveals a haunting AI presence that flickers with the myriad of layers within Chang's complex production work.
Honorat explains: "When I first listened to the whole album, “Zoetrope" directly captivated me, and I knew it was the one I’d like to make the video for. The textures of the song are so rich, and many ideas for forms and movement came to mind. I tried to blend ideas that came instinctively while listening with concepts directly based on an actual zoetrope." He continues: "The idea was to have a form that builds up the same way the image of a zoetrope would build up as the machine is speeding up."
