Radiohead Reach Out to Visual Artists for 'A Moon Shaped Pool' Instagram Series
Published May 13, 2016Radiohead's new A Moon Shaped Pool has already offered up a pair of incredibly lush and affecting music videos, but the band's next visual plan of attack will come through their Instagram account. A series of vignettes attached to the group's latest album has begun to be unfurled over the social media platform.
A post from Radiohead explains that they reached out to a number of visual artists to reinterpret snippets of A Moon Shaped Pool for a series of Insta vids. The first clip is a melted, monochromatic landscape from self-described "audiovisual architect" Tarik Barri, who has collaborated with Thom Yorke in the past. He's affixed his imagery to a section of piano lifted from "Glass Eyes."
At the moment, it's unclear how regularly Radiohead will be making posts, or who else is attached to participate in the audio-visual series.
As previously reported, the band had tapped Chris Hopewell to deliver a stop motion animation video for A Moon Shaped Pool opener "Burn the Witch," which visually referenced British children's show Camberwick Green and early '70s horror classic The Wicker Man.
They quickly followed this up with Paul Thomas Anderson's frigid visuals for "Daydreaming." A 35mm print of the video of the latter is currently being screened along with a few movies at Toronto's TIFF Bell Lightbox.
