Watch Chino Amobi’s animated video for ‘Hard Stacatto’ featuring Embaci
Originally published by The Vinyl Factory.
Set for release on The Vinyl Factory, Chino Amobi’s provocative debut vinyl record minor matter is the spiritual counterpart to choreographer Ligia Lewis’ performance piece of the same name.
The dramaturgical match is best heard on ‘Hard Stacatto,’ an ambient-not-ambient track that convincingly channels the edge of black box theatre with terse strings and escalating vocals for leads.
The video, created by Berlin-based artist Martha Glenn, pictures the spectacle with aluminous dancers that pop and contort bodies as the track’s ambitious exercise in tension unravels.
