The Blackbird video is a collaborative music visualization project by Katja Schweiker and Thomas Frenzel. The video was done for Michael Fakeschs audio-visual project called VIDOS—a collection of music visualizations based on his album DOS. The video will find its place on the upcoming VIDOS DVD release among some of the most renowned filmmakers, designers and motion graphic artists.
The video‘s design is based on collage-like visual samples that quote Michael Fakeschs auditory style and mixes analog with digital elements—metaphors of the material and the immaterial and therefore objects of the real and the dream world. This composition creates kind of surrealistic environments. The brief plot is about trying and failure—trying to leave behind, trying to live in a forward-turned way, trying not to resign or surrender and finally trying to get aware.
