Official music video for Joey Beltram's "Together" Jewelz & Sparks RMX
for Halocyan Records
Conceptual music video inspired by the idea of a circular evolutionary cycle consistent throughout the universe.
Connecting themes and theories of episteme and techne as well as cycles and patterns of evolution to deterioration/degradation as infinite, unending and naturally intertwined. Inspired by a combination of Kubrick's film "2001" and Arthur C. Clarke's literature versions of the Dawn of Man sequence, this hypothesis presents the 'monolith' not as other, or tool of other, but as a state of evolution within this circular cycle. i.e. an organism evolves, becomes ape, becomes human, becomes monolith becomes, etc....but is truncated in this context as a final state before the beginning of the cycle of deterioration anew. Of course it could also be looked upon as one possible depiction of a bunch of apes dancing to the 'world's first drum machine'...that just happened to show up one day thousands of years ago out of nowhere. Either and any interpretation in between works.
