The Ground Wire video is now resonating, tune in.
Ski Beatz artistic direction is just as impressive as his creative direction. For this project he brought on the soulful 3d artist/animator/emcee/composer/designer and more Distrakt.
The choice was perfect in our opinion because Distrakt’s mind is not really from this planets time space frequency. He vibrates inter-dimensionally.
If that’s over ya head, then ya eye is not open yet… no problem, in due time that will change.
First thing noticed, rather felt, is his keen ability to adhere to sound and redirect as animation.
It’s details are simplistic on the initial layer, similar to the use of simplistic analog gear used by Ski. Yet the many underlying layers of each frame choice and graphic addition expressed the world of Ground Wire’s.
Ok, gonna get a lil deep here follow me.
There’s more to producing than creating a track. There’s the not so talked about world of that track.
A world that the producer creates/simulates and is actually alive in the mind.
Ok, I know your like wtf?
Tis true and in our opinion all artist experience a similar occurrence, though might not know how to interpret it. But it’s an alternate world of sound within the producer’s mind.
Now if this world could be visualized, the above video is one very close possibility of how that reality looks like.
The pyramid over the main graphic character’s head (aka Ski) tapping into the circuitry source and controlling that reality, birthing the sound we now here as Ground Wire and really the genesis of the Switched On Bap project.
Yes, that’s what it is, we’re tapped in.
I had flashbacks of vintage SpiderMan cartoons with Dr Octopus.
Then I wanted to show you a bit of the Distrakt’s world and the level that he’s on.
Now peep his lyrical skills merged with selfless expression. Yes, he created this eclectic artistic work, different vibrations going on here.
With that, definitely look out for the brother. He’s an artistic sprit that mean more to the culture, than than the minds eye can see.
… and that’s #thebrooklynword. Salute!
