Chad VanGaalen – “Peace On The Rise” Music Video

Calgary-based musician Chad VanGaalen is one talented dude, and his artistic skills are just as prominent as his musical skills. How fortuitous that he is in a position to animate a video such as this one, for “Peace Is On The Rise”! What you can expect from this video is plenty of aliens, morphing and melting characters (primarily towards the amazing end), heavy linework, and ever-amassing subtleties. The video explores both the micro and the macro, with an overall result quite reminiscent of a ebbing and flowing cartoons like Superjail! or Fantastic Planet.

Vivian Hua 華婷婷 is a writer, filmmaker, and organizer. As the Executive Director of Northwest Film Forum in Seattle and Editor-in-Chief of the interdisciplinary arts publication, REDEFINE, much of her work unifies her metaphysical interests with her belief that art can positively transform the self and society. She regularly shares human-centered stories through her storytelling newsletter, RAMBLIN’ WITH VEE! In 2020, she will [hopefully] begin production on a comedic Asian-American series entitled Reckless Spirits.
