Greetings Earth beings,

Here I offer you a video I have been working on all week titled ‘The Invisible Monster’. I pieced together footage of my sister from a silent film we made together in 2011 for CocoRosie’s film festival held in Germany. I decided that I loved the imagery and creepy vibes in it so much that I wanted to recreate it into a video to go with my music.

The story is of a girl whose face was eaten by birds resulting in her monstrous appearance. She feels so ugly that in order to hide herself from the world she wears a gas mask and lives in complete solitude.

I created the music using my music box collection. I disassamble my music boxes, remove the clockwork mechanism to expose the tuned metal comb inside. Then, using a sewing needle I very carefully pluck at the tuned teeth of the metal comb to play the instrument myself, turning it from an automatic instrument into a playable instrument. I record this process and using loops I layer the sounds to create intricate and idiosyncratic music.

Due to the low sound my music is best heard at high volume through good quality head phones.

Creepy stills from a video I am making. And yes, I do need a better camera -_-

While editing the footage a strap from the gas mask kept forming what looks like a unicorn horn, so I included a still of that too.
