A hooded protagonist armed with a skateboard and a holographic blueprint of a mysterious religious site—a church with a pentagram on it—stars in the offbeat animated music video for electronic synth pop outfit Infinity Shred’s “Choir VI” (off the band’s sophomore album, Long Distance, out October 14th). Pews fly in different directions as he enters the structure, the holy sanctuary transforming into a skate park replete with holographic kickers and digital quarter pipes. He transfers from ramp to ramp, following Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater-like physics, but with a unique twist: thanks to the talents of director Jonathan Baken, a.k.a., Popcornn_10 (one-half of the uncanny animation project Cool 3D World), his body twists and morphs like Mr. Fantastic. At one point, the roles are even reversed, and the board rides him.
To help realize their strange vision, the Brooklyn band called upon the digital artist, best known for his bizarre satirical vignettes, for mockups for the “digital choir” they envisioned for their music video. After looking over some images, the group decided to run with it and turned their idea into a full music video.
“The concept for the holographic monks came from a late-night rumination about what role religion would play in a future of deathless humans and cyborgs,” the band writes. “Is religion still as valuable to those who follow it or is everyone content because they can now assure infinite life?”
