tUnE-yArDs – “Bizness” Music Video

tUnE-yArDs’ new video for “Bizness” off her upcoming album, w h o k i l l, combines manic editing tricks, modern dance, and lipsyncing by young students pretending to be Merrill Garbus. These elements themselves are nothing new, but as one might expect from Garbus, everything in this video is more about fun than it is about pretension.

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.

[…] THEMES & CONCEPTS “The artwork plays off of some of the performance aspects of tUnE-yArDs. If you pay close attention, you can see how the whole thing is put together — how the parts make up the whole. The diagonal-patterned lines are intended to mimic the way the sound loops function in the performances.
