Video: Robot Koch – Care feat. Julien Marchal

German electronic musician, singer and songwriter ROBOT KOCH will be releasing his new album HYPERMOMENT on Modeselektor’s Monkeytown Records November 6 and is now offering the song “Care” as an instant grat along with its gorgeous video created by freelance filmmaker and audio technology researcher Mickael Le Goff. His creation is a stunning compliment to KOCH’s melancholy production featuring Julien Marchal.

Le Goff’s work focuses on a strong interaction between sound and images, using traditional video techniques as well as stop motion, light painting animation, 3D, VFX or generative coding. For the release of ROBOT KOCH’s new album, he created a hypnotic and organic world of visuals traveling from space to small crystals formation. Creating the images for “Care,” small droplets of ink were placed in a drop of oil in suspension. When releasing in the water, the slowly evolving mixture of oil and colored ink created interestingorganic structures. The process has been repeated with some inertia in the water and these structures started to somehow dance, fitting nicely with the music flow. All the images have been filmed with macro lenses and a glass of water. (More about Le Goff can be found at http://mlegoff.tumblr.com/ or https://vimeo.com/mickaellegoff)

HYPERMOMENT, while retaining ROBOT’S much loved hallmarks, is a true evolution of his sound and style. Driving deeper into more intimate territory with swathes of warm, saturated, analog sounds, real world field recording, and lush pianosand soundscapes, this is the first of any of ROBOT’S works to feature his own voice (as can be heard on “Care,” “Serenade” and “Fernwood”). The field recordings were captured along ROBOT’S nomadic writing trips to New York, Berlin and the inspiring Joshua Tree in California, as well as his new home base of Silver Lake in Los Angeles, where he was constantly writing and re-writing the tracks to fit in with the basis and ethos of the album.
