Music from the David Bowie cover project You Can’t Hide Beat by My Lithium & Me. Video by Matthew Greasley using footage from The Mask (A Mime) from David Bowie’s Love Me Till Tuesday and processed within Modul8.
I think the instrumental part was created first as a standalone track, and then I found this creepy puppet sketch from something called Peppermint Park…
I was astounded and entranced to find the very disturbing Jonestown Death Tape, a recording made at the infamous mass suicide and murder in Guyana. I made an audio track sampling this recording using Logic, and then created a video to accompany this using footage from a Jim Jones TV documentary. Not for the faint hearted.
