…a rebellious teenager slaves away in a dystopian world, harvesting crystals from a vast grey landscape. This sparkling bounty is given as an offering to a tribal deity, who resides in a shrine guarded by sentinels with green glowing masks, where he is constantly under attack from an army of drones… Take a moment to imagine what it would be like to live in that world.
The new video for Reminder – the first single from the upcoming album Moderat III – will take you there!
PFADFINDEREI, Moderat’s long-time creative partner for visual works, came up with the innovative idea of using gaming aesthetic and VR production tools to make the experience truly, and uniquely, immersive and invited SEHSUCHT Berlin, to realize the full scope of this ambitious project. Mate Steinforth and the SEHSUCHT Berlin team developed the imaginative, politically charged narrative.
The trio of Apparat (Sascha Ring) and Modeselektor (Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary) akka Moderat, are ready to release their third and final album, III, on April 1st, following 2013’s II and 2009’s Moderat. The record is being co-released by Mute Records and Monkeytown Records.
Moderat will also tour all over Europe and North America in support of their upcoming album. For visual direction and their impressive live shows the trio teamed up with renowned artist collective Pfadfinderei.
