August Rosenbaum releases visuals for "Nebula"
Today the talented August Rosenbaum releases a captivating video for his single "Nebula".
The song is the first single to be released from his coming album Vista, set for November 24, 2017 via Tambourhinoceros.
The powerful and poetic video was directed by the Swedish artist Andreas Emenius (Trentemøller etc.) and made in collaboration with Prxjects, a culture laboratory initiated by Mercedes-Benz (www.prxjects.com).
Shot in a studio in Copenhagen the video captures the persistence and endurance of the protagonist as he struggles to maintain balance at the intersection between the archaic world and the modern.
To the sound of an apocalyptic anthem set in an uncanny sports hall we see him perform ritualistic movements as he prepares for a baptism of sorts in a desperate attempt to start all over.
August elaborates on the song:
“"Nebula" is a theme for the future. To me it’s a dream of floating in infinite darkness - somewhere between a space odyssey and a fever dream, both heavy and weightless. When I close my eyes I see images from Stanley Kubrick’s A Space Odyssey and Tarkovsky’s Solaris. Both of which are among my all-time favourite soundtracks”
