Published Apr 29, 2013Dan Deacon has released a music video for his Record Store Day single, "Konono Ripoff Nº1," and it's a one-of-a-kind interactive experience.
According to a press release, "The cast is made up of the Baltimore arts community. The video is a series of animated GIF portraits of each cast member with objects they felt represented them or were special to them." The song, meanwhile, is one of Deacon's signature hyper-caffeinated electro jams.
You can watch the music video below, but fans seeking the full experience are advised to download the app from DanDeacon.com/konono. The aforementioned press release continues, "The smartphone app syncs the phone to the music video and results in two simultaneous playing videos. The video on the smartphone displays the rotating objects of the cast member in the music video. The speed of the object's rotation is determined by the user holding the smartphone."
Deacon will be touring with Animal Collective later this year.
