VHS Head - Persistence Of Vision

Recommended Posts

This guys a true original. I like how he does all the sequencing live to a video loop - interesting creative process.

Amazed that he does a day job. I just assumed he was making enough to do music full time.

Incredibly talented guy.

" I made this music whilst watching this video on repeat, so I figured it would be the best video for the track.

I just turned on Movies4Men (channel that almost exclusively shows shitty B-movies) and it was playing a melody I'm pretty sure was sampled on this album. The film's called Kommando Leopard.

Cant bring myself to watch the video for fear that peeking behind the curtain will destroy the (body) magic

not at all for me^

if anything it boosted my respect for him as musician. 'true original' (quote: westhead, Yesterday, 08:46 AM) sums it up nicely.

i remain just as mystified about his process after that video. it seems really fucking labour intensive.

Yeah this video spoils 0 mystery, dude is legit, sits and watches VHS movies late at night using a 12 year old (tracker?) and composing to video loops on the CRT above him

 

anyway the important bit about any artist imo is the product and what it reveals about their inner mind, if you need 'mystery' or expect somebody to have some kind of exceptional living circumstance or whatever you're really looking for a gimmick and ignoring the fact that this person has created a tunnel into their inner world w/ their music.

Great stuff. Enjoyed the video. PoV is still one of my favorite releases period of the last few years.

sounds like you've got some tales to tell!

 

in all seriousness though, of all the musicians I've met in person, everyone has always been really laid back. I've not really been able to chat with anyone from outside of Europe though...

I somehow managed to put off listening to this for 2 entire years (EDIT: I guess it's only been out for like 15 months, derp). At any rate, I'm sure it's far too late to buy the vinyl so I'm listening on Spotify like a dick (I bought Midnight Section & Trademark on vinyl though), but I just wanted to say that this is great stuff.

It does feel both more emotionally detached and technically superior to Trademark. I almost wanted to say it's like his Campfire Headphase but that doesn't really do it justice because this is more interesting both technically and emotionally than TCH. Some of the melodies seem to have a little less bite than usual but when he finds his groove (which is on almost all the tracks) they really hit the mark. I think he's expressing himself more through the rhythm than the melodies which I am very much into at the moment. He's really getting a knack for those sexy late 80s / early 90s type basslines too.

Also Red Ocean Apocalypse could totally be the title screen to a TV show, totally reminds me of Beyond 2000 from the Discovery Channel in the 90s. Those kicks are beefy too.

 

Trademark Ribbons hit me hard at a time in my life when I needed its weird rugged solace, and this feels really right to me now in a much different, more self-assured way. Both of them have that great sense of determination that a dude who watches fucktons of VHS tapes just to find sweet samples definitely understands.

Nice video and remix! Though I still prefer the original, it tended to get overlooked amongst all the awesomeness of POV but it sets the tone for the rest of the album perfectly.

 

And if someone asks if you're a god, say yes ffs

heck yes.

 

i was raised on a healthy diet of horror movies and one of the things that truly creeped me out was that fleshless woman from hellraiser. it was kind of erotic, bc she was naked innit? but incredibly unsettling too.

 

would do/Ade pls

I tend to disagree, they're both ace but I give it to POV by a nose.

 

We can all agree that new VHS would be a most (moist?) welcome proposition, no?
