Ancient Beyond Knowledge

I’ve been wanting to put something like this together since I started recording music and it is through the inestimable patience and talent of Miranda Langevin that I am able to bring this to you. There’s more information about the full length release here. Because the whole thing is about 40 minutes long and Miranda had gotten an amazing job on a feature set we had to film an excerpt.

At the risk of over-explaining, this video attempts to capture an experience with hypothetical extraterrestrials. It has been postulated that encounters with extraterrestrials are so bizarre because the visitors are coming from other dimensions and our means of perceiving them are too rooted in our own dimension to make sense of them. In part influenced by the computer animation team at Ancient Aliens and by the wild imagery of Jack Vance’s Dying Earth series, this is my attempt to create visually what I hope the full piece accomplishes aurally.
