Prepare to have your breath taken away. The music video for The Glitch Mob tune Becoming Harmonious is nothing short of stunning. Award winning director Susi Sie created all the amazing effects you’re about to see using nothing more than water, some lycopodium powder, a subwoofer, a Canon 5D and a 100mm macro lens. This technique allows Susi to create visuals that really capture the essence of life’s imperfections in a way that no computer-generated imagery could possibly match.
The result is organic and captivating. Set against what is in itself a moving and engaging piece of music, this might just be the best music video we’ve seen for years. Susi’s refusal to adhere to contemporary standards and use computer animation and effects is a glorious example of creativity and a breath of fresh air for the electronic music scene as a whole.
The Glitch Mob’s album, Love Death Immortality, is out now.
