[Music/Art] Serpiko - Smoke Break (Official Video)
The debut music video from resident creative SERPIKO.
Psychic Garden is proud to present the new exclusive music video for SMOKE BREAK, the brand new track from SERPIKO, the young and extremely talented multi-instrumentalist producer maestro from London. This new track is taken from his debut album, SLEEP STATE, which is out soon. All of the new music on the upcoming project was performed, recorded, produced, mixed and mastered entirely by SERPIKO during the lockdown limbo of 2020.
This inter-dimensional hypnotic psychedelic audiovisual odyssey is a vibrant multimedia creative experiment directed and edited by Denholm Hewlett, in collaboration with SERPIKO. The full 7-track SLEEP STATE album is out now and we will cover it fully tomorrow. Until then, light one up, press play and immerse yourself in the sounds of SLEEP STATE
Me and SERPIKO decided early on that we were interested in creating something organic with a resourceful frame of mind. I took inspiration from my DROP THE BOMB music video for YOTA & MF DOOM, which incorporated a wide variety of bizarre stock footage and obscure propaganda animations. The video for SMOKE BREAK was made using hundreds of different clips taken from strange archive footage, obscure foreign animations and long-lost forgotten documentary footage. The end result is a hypnotic and mesmerising audiovisual collage of hallucinogenic and mystical visuals taken from all across the cultural spectrum. ~ Denholm Hewlett (Director & Editor)
Here are my favourite animations that I sampled for SMOKE BREAK. Please stay tuned, more new music from SERPIKO coming very soon! ~
