A visual piece by Michael Zoidis & Jodie Southgate, exploring the hazy slow-building ambient piece 'a2' by Ólafur Arnalds & Nils Frahm.
"For the video I cast my mind back to an old chemistry set I had when younger and experimented with some milk, food colour, vinegar and a macro lens to create a visual piece to accompany the music. The results were unexpected. I was rather pleased with some and I wanted to share them with you." - Michael Zoidis, director
"An ambient track that wraps itself around your synapses like balm as they've been dwindled by the unavoidable daily contact with Skrillex and PSY." - Noisey Video Premiere

"We showed him the piano; it was as if we were introducing someone to him to the first time. He lifted the lid, hit a couple of keys, smiled and murmured, “He’s got character”. Later: “He’s unpredictable. I like it”. He played a little more, and called out to us once more: “Hmm… there’s a slight chance that I might break it. I get excited sometimes.” We didn’t tell this to our hosts; instead, we crossed our fingers."
