Big Dada-signed producer Visionist has just released a video for the title track of his second album ‘Value’. Directed by Frederik Heyman, the clip uses ‘photogrammetric’ techniques in order to place the musician in numerous roles in a variety of static scenes.

“‘Value’ initially deals with the issue of self-struggle, and those actions internally but also externally that have caused this torment”, says Visionist. “The overcoming of this is one of self-preservation and self-saviour. I wanted to work with Frederik as he deals with the perception of realness, something I deal with within my own anxieties, creating and believing in situations that haven’t even happened yet”.

Explaining a little more about the project, Heyman adds: “Visionist and I focused on historic press images of people in the need of rescue. Visionist then re-enacts these situations via numerous 3D scans that are processed into several digital installations, maintaining the original photographic stillness that is key to my work”.

You can catch Visionist live at Ormside Projects in London on 7 Dec. Right now, though, you really need to watch this video, because I don’t think either of those quotes have really got across how good it is.
