I want to use this space to acknowledge the senseless murder of George Floyd and stand with everyone demanding justice, and peacefully protesting police brutality and systemic racism. We're putting everything on pause for the day. I realise this action alone will not bring about any substantial change so if you have any ideas about how best to use this platform to be an ally during this time, please email me directly: [email protected]

You can seek justice for George Floyd by signing any of these petitions:

We Can't Breathe

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.
