Cyriak Harris’s ‘brain-spill’ style may have suggested that creating an indie-band performance video might be a challenge too far. Well, so much for that theory. The After Effects magician-genius, gets hold of Bloc Party and deconstructs the heck out of their performance of Ratchet - until he just about redefines the performance video.
We shouldn’t really be surprised at what Cyriak can do, but it’s still jawdropping. And Cyriak actually used existing Bloc Party performance footage as the basis of his work (mainly from Nova Dando’s video last year for Octopus). A brilliant example of music video recycling.
