Jon Hopkins “Open Eye Signal” Music Video

open eye signal music video

After finding the “Red Dust” video below, I poked around on James Vincent McMorrow’s site.  He wrote that he reached out to Aoife McArdle immediately after seeing her video for Jon Hopkins’ “Open Eye Signal”. So I had to watch it too, and wow, what an experience! Certainly one of the best videos this year.

I don’t know if I’ve ever posted back to back music video written and directed by the same person. Needless to say, Aoife McArdle is one to watch, and so is the DP, Steve Annis.

Watch “Open Eye Signal” below.
