The Garment District

Yes, “Nature-Nurture” can spook you silly as a human, and so can this video. It’s in human nature to seize, sometimes. Some of us. And it takes a little codling to bring us back to calm. Thanks to the jarring image collage done herrr by Pittsburgh-based filmmaker Keith Tassick and Jennifer Baron’s (The Garment District) eerie scaling, Lucy Blehar’s (Baron’s cousin) vocals nurture viewers’ ears as they’s eyes redden and tremble. Using 700 nightly television news stills that Baron collected, Tassick wrote an application to place them in random sequences matching the pulses of the music, convulsing you, the viewer. If you survive this video (I was instructed to watch it in a pitch black room), pick up Melody Elder as a cassette off Night People or digitally on the Bandcamp below. YAY!
