    A meeting between musician Jaimeo Brown and the New York-based filmmaker found the two of them shared similar views on how they liked to work, particularly in creating room for improvisation and intuition. With a new release for Brown coming up, a collaboration on a promo was the obvious next step. It was clear that Schiedon and Brown wanted to combine and reference elements from different eras and genres. And they shared a preference in working quite organically, combining high end technology with tactile, DIY methods. It was important not to lose the humanity in production, whilst also maintaining a sense of 'imperfection' within the filmmaking. Schiedon explains, "The video applies that notion of imperfection, for instance, by using a partly practical, partly animated, approach to bring the skeleton dancer to life. There are smoother ways to do it, but none of them are this much fun."

    On the track "Be So Glad," from Jaimeo Brown Transcendence's breakthrough sophomore album "Work Songs", Brown and Chris Sholar (the production team that comprises Jaimeo Brown Transcendence) sample inmates from the Parchman Farm Prison in Mississippi in 1959. "Be So Glad" is a prime example of common repetition in work songs creating a type of mantra that changes the feeling of labor -- a vehicle to transport people from the high walls of despair to personal awakenings of freedom.

    "'Work Songs' is one of the most exciting, experimental, and important albums set to drop this year." - VICE

    Jaimeo Brown Transcendence is the product of long-time collaboration between Brown and co-producer/guitarist Chris Sholar (who won a GRAMMY® Award for his work on Kanye West and Jay-Z's Watch the Throne). Both emerging from a generation that appreciates the jazz in hip-hop, the artists with whom this duo has collaborated with speaks for itself. Brown, as drummer, has sat behind the skins for Stevie Wonder, Carlos Santana, Q-Tip, Carl Craig, Kenny Garrett, Geri Allen, and Bobby Hutcherson, among others. Sholar's work as guitarist and producer has spanned the likes of Beyonce, Kanye West, Jay-Z, Frank Ocean, A Tribe Called Quest, Robert Glasper, D'Angelo, Just Blaze, Common, Dr. Dre and more. More than just music, Jaimeo Brown Transcendence is a movement, a moment, and an imperative: home to a variety of collaborators and contributors, from different eras and across the globe.

    History, art, technology, the future... this video perfectly captures the themes that are at the core of Transcendence.

  4. Void is a meditation on the psychology of the creative mind and the choices we face when we create.

    Originally a labour of love, then shelved as a horrible failure and now reborn as an odd remix of old and new.
    It has been an ongoing project for almost 3 years which I have abandoned and restarted many times.

    When returning to the piece after not working on it for months, I would often reevaluate everything and start over.
    A vicious cycle where everything would look dated when I was ready to put in the time.
    My struggle with being satisfied with the creative eventually became the common thread for the short.

    The art of creation can be as frustrating as it can be rewarding, and maybe it has to be a bit of both.
    Pure and raw creativity goes a long way but self-editing is just as important and far more difficult in my mind.

    This project is like a stream of conscious inspired by the things and the art I find aesthetically pleasing.
    Through a string of creative scenarios we slowly make our way from the light and into the darkness.
