Matterplay video by Malenky Slovos
I first came across Italian alt-rock group Malenky Slovos when they posted a link to their cover version of Brian Eno’s lovely song By this River on Bowiewonderworld. I told them how impressed I was by it and gradually the idea of a collaboration emerged. They used my electronic instrumental track Matterplay as the basis of a new song by them – also called Matterplay.
Study for a Video for The Waiting.
The more I developed my thinking about the various ways words and music could interact and co-exist with each other in songs, the more intrigued I became by the possibility of adding yet another layer of meaning to the song by making a video. In the end, I made this study myself. I am not a film maker and I would be the first to admit that the results are amateurish and ragged around the edges. Nevertheless, I learned a lot by doing this, lessons which will stand me I good stead when I come to negotiate with professional film makers over new videos. Perhaps this video itself is not entirely without merit? Perhaps. . . . .
