Yamantaka // Sonic Titan's sound is both raw and beautiful. When we got to work concepting this piece we were inspired to tap into the experimental and theatrical aspects of Yamantaka and the apparent collision of cultural and artistic references. We also wanted to create something that resonated against what the music made us feel. The piece depicts an otherworldly act of creation—a kind of highly art-directed alchemist meets designer at work in her laboratory workshop. The activation and fuelling of a mysterious sculptural entity with a heart-like cystal and liquid gold core is the culmination of the creative ritual.

In a not too distant future, societies of all countries come to rely on an intricate network of artificial intelligence devices designed to bring efficacy to man's life. Yet, man continues to devour himself in useless wars. A strong political hierarchy now divides all powers into three factions, and A. I. devices rapidly gain ground as efficiency becomes a priority.
As social revolts grow worse everyday, authorities seek ways to control their citizens. They decide to carry out a series of tests that will determine not only whether some crucial powers can be transferred to non human entities, but also whether man is ready to yield those powers.
The world has become a cell for all man and women, who withstand and endure their lives, rather than living them. Machines might have found a solution.
From now on, you are set free. ..
Keloid is not about robots, it is about men. Big Lazy Robot created this spec film -- more than two years in the making -- with the purpose of giving free reign to the creative aspects of production that many times are so much missed during profit work. And yes, we enjoyed the ride!
