pedro “blackhill” mandou pra gente…

Despite the limited resources and locations imposed by the quarantine, Thiago had nothing to complain about. The friends mentioned above were the camerawoman Geraldine Pasztor, the music artist Jonas Sá, the guitarist Pedro Sá (and his son, Nino) and the singer Luiza Casé. With Jonas as director, the group filmed the entire music video using whatever color lamps, cellophane and tin foil they could find at home. Having in mind Thiago’s idea of using paper clippings and the photos produced by Hick Duarte and Caio Paiva for Mente, Jonas used stop-motion animations and fast-paced editing to create a collage effect. The video presents us with a colourful Thiago singing in the midst of a psychedelic entropy of images that cuts between textures and spaces and makes both reality and imagination hard to distinguish; a refrigerator that eats people and dangerous 2D stones that are like hypnotic kryptonite. Soar Estranho is the first single from MENTE, the artist’s new album that will be released on July 3rd on LP, CD and digital by the London Gearbox label.
