He’s also released lyric videos for three 22, A Million tracks.
Justin Vernon’s weapon of choice for Bon Iver’s third full-length 22, A Million was the OP-1 portable synth — and he put it to good use this weekend in Berlin.
Performing at Michelberger Music, a two-day music and visual art festival Vernon organized with The National’s Dessner brothers Aaron and Bryce, Vernon linked with members of Teenage Engineering, the minds behind the OP-1, to perform a techno set.
He’s also been releasing a steady slew of lyric videos for the tracks from 22, A Million. So far, we’ve gotten collaged visuals for ‘715 – CR∑∑KS’, ‘29 #Strafford APTS’ and ‘666 ʇ’. Check those clips and fan-caught footage of Vernon going techno in Berlin below.
