Here is a video to accompany the release:


  1. Many thanks for this - excellent

  2. Fabulous, simply fabulous. Love the video, I've been something similar for a while now and used the video feedback loop a few years back for some quite weirdly weirdo paranormally type stuff called I.T.C. (Instrumental Transcommunication - weird stuff) - I even ended up on TV as part of a "Jane Goldman Investigates" episode with it. That's another story - lol. As I've indicated before, I have a real fascination with the video feedback loop and I have to say the images really work well with your music - nice one. Would releasing a DVD be something you might consider? Oh yeah, if you have a sudden increase in YouTube hits for this track, it's probably me - lol :-D

    1. thanks for that neil. actually the footage is just the V100 camera looking at an oscilloscope - no feedback as such. saving that for my next video! [i used feedback in the still for the album cover though]

      i then reshot the tv screen on an iPhone and thats where the colour comes from - just the rgb pixels freaking out in closeup

  3. Cool - as I now own an oscilloscope, I feel there maybe some experimentation happening around here ;-D Looking forward to the next video!!!
