Brooklyn composer twig twig – real name Zubin Hensler – embraces the element of chance.
New EP 'Normal Feelings' is a case in point. The American artist utilises found sound, recording elements of everyday life and turning it into music.
The results have a beautiful innocence, a fragrant naivety about them. Curious vignettes of sound that rumble in the memory, you can get a glimpse of this in 'Color Me'.
The track has received the full visual treatment, with director Charles Billot steering the video.
Zubin explains: "Very excited about the little group of people who poured their talents in to this video. I first met Charles Billot (director) when I was selling him mushrooms at a Farmers Market in Brooklyn. I became infatuated with a stop motion series he made out of X-Rays found in the trash, and we immediately felt a certain kinship in our processes. I got to know Maggie Segale (dancer) while she was still at Juilliard and have ever since been mesmerized by her movement — always imbued with such strong personality, delicate and powerful and playful. Gabriel Gall (additional footage) is quite possibly my favourite musician and also shoots strange and beautiful things with his camera. What a treat to have friends like these."
