Eskmo has shared an amazing stop-motion video for “Mind of War,” which is available for viewing over at NPR. The video was directed by Robot Chicken’s Dillon Markey using a Nintendo Power Glove and was fully improvised, partially using live audience participation of those who wandered into the shoot at MAMA Gallery in Los Angeles. The video was shot over the course of 14 hours in which 4,606 photos were taken. “Mind of War” is off Eskmo’s new album, SOL, which was released yesterday by Apollo Records.
Eskmo also recently announced some U.S. shows (listed in full below) and will be playing next week in Los Angeles with a 20 piece ensemble as party of Echo Society.
Apollo Records is proud to present SOL, the highly anticipated second album from Los Angeles based producer / composer Eskmo AKA Brendan Angelides. Inspired by our life giving planetary body, SOL is a masterful meditation on human emotional plane as effected by planetary bodies. Angelides has delivered perhaps his strongest musical statement yet.
