Devendra Banhart – A Ribbon

Ribbons around the fumes, we’ll be sleeping soon

DEVENDRA BANHART: A Ribbon - MPEG-4 clip
A blood-red ribbon floats through a surreal environment in this haunting video.

Directed by Michel Gondry and Lauri Faggioni, with animation by Peter Sluszka, editing by Charlie Johnston at Lost Planet: the same team that worked on Steriogram’s Walkie Talkie Man. It premiered at the MOMA in January, 2005.

Special effects: Arthur Hur.

A graduate of the San Francisco Art Institute, Devendra Banhart always used art as his means of communicating. Whether through poetry, painting or music, the artist’s talent is only surpassed by his eclectic nature.

A Ribbon is a peculiar song, sweet and eerie at the same time. It is featured on Nino Rojo, Devendra’s third album released in Semptember 2004 for XL Recordings, soon after his second out, Rejoicing in the Hands.

Un nastro rosso sangue fluttua attraverso un ambiente surreale, in questo video stregato.

Diretto da Michel Gondry e Lauri Faggioni, animato da Peter Sluszka, montaggio di Charlie Johnston presso Lost Planet: lo stesso team che ha lavorato a Walkie Talkie Man degli Stereogram. Il video ha esordito nel gennaio 2005 al MOMA.

Effetti speciali: Arthur Hur.

Diplomato al
San Francisco Art Institute, Devendra Banhart ha sempre usato l’arte come mezzo di comunicazione. Che si tratti di poesia, pittura o musica, il talento dell’artista risulta secondo solo alla sua natura eclettica.

A Ribbon e’ una canzone particolare, dolce e al tempo stesso inquietante. E’ contenuta in Nino Rojo, terzo album di Devendra uscito nel settembre 2004 per XL Recordings, subito dopo il suo secondo lavoro, Rejoicing in the Hands.

    hm… so where’s the surrealism? just because it’s stop motion animated doesn’t make it surreal…
