14 Jun Tycho – Ascension Music Video (MV of the Week)
I might also add that it is likely the Ghostly International connection, but the slowly-expanding paint splotches used occasionally in this video are reminiscent of the genius abstractions from Matthew Dear’s Headcage EP… and you should definitely view this in 1080p HD.
FROM THE PRESS RELEASE
“Tycho… saw the release of the “Fragments.Ascension” 12″… where he teamed up with Rob Garza of Thievery Corporation. As fans of each other’s material for a while now, it only made sense that the two would come together for a split co-release on Ghostly International and Thievery’s own ESL Music label. Side A sees Tycho take Thievery’s “Fragments,” originally released on 2011’s Culture of Fear LP, on a synth swirl ride with shades of guitar riffs that create a candy cane-like visual experience. Meanwhile, Rob Garza of Thievery fame grabs the mellow “Ascension,” taken from 2012’s Dive, and makes a slightly dark dance track with hand claps. Hearing both remixed and original tracks side by side makes it obvious that both artists come from the same lineage of music making. The releases is limited to 300 units, and can be purchased here and here.”
