Sometimes The Stars

“Here I am confessing: you’re lost to me now.
I’m on a train telling strangers, about you;
How you’re still looking fine, how you ease my lonely mind;
Long summers and wine:  yeah, you saved me.”

Luke Jurevicius, Ari Gibson, Jason Pammet and Shane Devries collaborated together on this quiet, contemplative music video for The Audreys, a five-piece blues/roots band from Adelaide.  We’ve featured two of Ari and Jason’s collaborations previously and it’s great to see their how their unique stylistic approach was informed by Luke and Shane’s exquisite and surreal initial concept art. If you’re curious to learn more about how it all came together, click here. Enjoy!

“Now your bowl is empty and your feet are cold,
And your body cannot stop rocking.
I know…it hurts to let go.

This one’s a bit melancholy but, don’t despair, it’s also sweet and poignant so the net outcome skews towards reflection, not sadness. Ari Gibson channels a Miyazaki-esque vibe in this music video for Gotye that does a terrific job of exploring the weird, heady gumbo of new (often times conflicting) emotions and experiences that define our transition to adulthood. What gets lost as we grow up? Can we get it back?

The synergy between the visuals and the music is fantastic so make sure HD (available in both 720 and 1080p) is selected and the headphones are on. Enjoy! Oh, and Ari also directed The Cat Piano, an excellent short film we posted back in June so I’d recommend giving that a watch next.

The Cat Piano

“So you’ve heard of every instrument but?
Torn from your history books is this pianola,
This harpsichord of harm.
The cruelest instrument to spawn from man’s grey cerebral soup.
The Cat Piano.”

KC Gordon posted this gem to our Facebook wall over a week ago and it’s a shame that it took us so long to get it up on the site. ‘The Cat Piano’ is a fantastic eight-and-a-half minute animated short based on a poem by Eddie White. Eddie, along with Ari Gibson, directed the film, Nick Cave provided the narration and animation duties were expertly handled by The People’s Republic of Animation. The whole film is great but we especially enjoy the sequence that starts at 4:52. Enjoy!

Thanks for the heads-up, KC! If you’ve got anything that you think would be perfect for The Tripatorium™ you can submit your suggestions either here on the site or on our Facebook page.
