Jewels - video for Black Atlass by Yoann Lemoine

Yoann Leoine (or Woodkid, when working on his own musical projects) has developed a very distinctive yet unpredictable visual style. Every video, regardless of musical content or the artist he is working for, is reliably exquisite, sumptuous and seething with sensuous ideas. He is clearly fascinated by matter, its behavior and its symbolic power, things dear to the heart of the DTA project. There are moments here which call to mind the compelling transformations detailed in J.G. Ballard's unforgettable "The Crystal World", indeed there is also a sense that Leoine is striving toward a similar meaning in what he has created. This video for Black Atlass is quintessential Lemoine and it comes as no surprise to learn he spent a huge amount of time crafting every frame in this series of hallucinatory transformations. His undeniable skills as a composer clearly give him a huge edge when it comes to fusing images indelibly with any music he is given. It seems every piece is forever transformed and enriched by his involvement.
