2030 Memory
Info :

This music video, made for Detroit techno artist Christian Bloch (Tresor/Thinner), complements a dubby techno soundtrack with precisely controlled movement. The frame-perfect editing synchronises drum hits with the flicker of an eyelid. The video contrasts shots of a searching male eye, and reflected light in a female eye, together with glimpses of an urban landscape.
