A former member of dance punk band The Rapture, Gabriel Andruzzi, has shared a new video under his Moon Temple alias, created in collaboration with the NYC-based film production company Georgia. Completely set in spatial modeling software, the "Calisto's Running" clip consists of a series of geometric object studies that look reminiscent of an iPhone puzzle game. They're serene in their simplicity, and offer a cutely hypnotizing set of moving parts to accompany Andruzzi's eerie, minimalist instrumental.
The artist gave THUMP some background via email. "The song itself is meditation on a single interlocking melody that twists in and out of different voices," he said. "A hypnagogic chant for synthesizers." Meanwhile, Georgia said their video is intended to "make people like cats: totally glazed out."
For a blast from the past, check out a demo version of The Rapture's "Every Little Thing," produced by Danger Mouse and released on their 2006 album Pieces of the People We Love.
