Arp, the musical project of artist Alexis Georgopoulos, has always had a penchant for twisting pop melodies toward psychedelic and conceptual ends. On the video for his track “Pulsars e Quasars” he works with video artist Paul Clipson (an experimental video artist who has frequently collaborated with Jefre Cantu-Ledesma / Tarentel) to create a Super 8mm-shot video of light flashes, glimpses of beaches, spectres of the familiar obscured and blurred, much like the song does with the sung melody.
Talking about the video, Georgopoulos said, “My favorite section centers on the bridge, beginning around 2:45. The imagery shifts entirely and the double and triple-exposures are just stunning.”
This isn’t the only collaboration between Clipson and Georgopoulos, they currently have an installation up in the Jack Hanley Gallery with RO/LU, which features a sound installation by Arp, 16mm from Clipson, and moveable sculptures by RO/LU.
The track “Pulsars e Quasars” is taken from the Pulsars e Quasars EP, out September 23rd on Mexican Summer. Watch the video below.
