Selected screening at Musiclip, International Music, Audiovisual Arts and Music Videos Festival of Barcelona, Spain. Official competition CVC, Vila do Conde, Portugal.
This is the official videoclip for the advance single of :papercutz's new album "Do Outro Lado Do Espelho (Lylac Ambient Reworks)" directed by Japan's animation revelation, Daihei Shibata. "Lylac (Helios remix)" is a remix of :papercutz song by American Keith Kenniff (Helios) whose Eingya album was considered one of the best in the year in the instrumental category for electronic publications as Popmatters, Stylus Magazine, Tiny Mix Tapes and All Music Guide and whose music can be heard on soundtracks of films like Mister Lonely, or Revolutionary Road by Sam Mendes.
"We're lost on an artificial light;
a white that blinds our human forms.
Take me away, from this moment on we’ll be as one.
But wait, I seem to recognize you.
Your face reminds me of youth.
Lifetime of changes taking place… taking place.
We're all spinning round,
letting it all go now, has never been easier.
(It's the change of seasons...the tree of life)"
":papercutz produce dreamy, ethereal, cinematic works and ideal for deconstructing and remixing. 'Do outro lado do espelho (Lylac ambient reworks)' illustrates how material can further blossom by the hand of some very talented artists. Do outro lado do espelho (transl: From the other side of the looking glass) means that this is their vision of the album's songs in their particular artistic world... it has been an ambitious project indeed. :papercutz, Helios, Emanuele Errante, Simon Scott, Taylor Deupree, He Can Jog, Rameses III, Autistici, Chris Bissonnette, The Astroboy, Jasper TX & Feu Follet all provide remarkable reworkings." Audiobulb Records

I began working on this video in 2006. I kept refining it between all of my other projects and could finally start finishing it full time in October 2009.
In December I had all assets ready to start producing the final film - this process and the final film was also my Bachelor of Arts Thesis in Virtual Design at the University of Applied Sciences Kaiserslautern.
Now shortly after NOISIA released their debut Album "Split the Atom" the Exodus-Project is finally done.
It premiered exclusively on Sony Computer Entertainments vidzone the largest online music video service in the world.
