Published Sep 26, 2013Ambient music master Tim Hecker has slid us another sneak preview of his impending Virgins LP with a grainy VHS-quality video for its "Black Refraction."
Directed by Sabrina Ratté, the video seems to take place in a chapel and features some sort of ceremonial urn swinging majestically from the rafters. The footage is fairly distorted and blown out, though, and occasionally drifts into blobs of incandescent light. Regardless, the arc of whatever that thing may be is pretty hypnotic and pairs nicely with the fluttery piano taps and eerily mucked-up, speaker-panning acoustic guitar textures.
You can check out the trance-inducing experience down below.
As previously reported, Virgins is out October 15 through Paper Bag/Kranky.
