Two years after Captain of None, French musician Colleen has announced the release of a new album. A flame my love, a frequency will be out on October 20th via Thrill Jockey. We already shared “Separating”; “Winter Dawn” is a new excerpt. Watch the official video directed by Connor Burke.
His words about it: “Propelled by otherworldly synth, “Winter Dawn” is a song that references beauty in the wake of death. Colleen’s gorgeous new album is entirely electronic but it still has an organic quality to it, like the rest of her work – so my biggest priority was to complement that.
Utilizing a mixture of specialized acrylics, silicone, and painting medium, I poured nearly seventy cups of the mixture onto canvases and filmed the interactions from above with a macro lens. The acrylics underwent a simple chemical reaction as the medium isolated the colors from one another.
The movement of the paint is minimal, almost dragging at times, inviting viewers to study the entirety of each frame. A combination of glowing colours, cells, and organic shapes ultimately work together to create forms that I found impossible to not be seen as human.”
