Canadian and First Nations “moccasin shoegaze” indie rock artist Zoon is back with his new track “Light Prism”, which you can watch exclusively via Aesthetic Magazine below.
“Working with Zoon on the Light Prism video was an inspiring experience where I felt I was encouraged to think outside the box and create a visual experience as stimulating as the song itself,” said director Drew Rutty. “What’s really cool about this project is that when we shot the footage for the video, I was not a part of the band. However over the course of editing and adding a shifting pool of colour and light to the footage we had, Dan asked me to join the band as bassist. So even though the video features no one on bass, the reality is that the bassist is in the video by way of its creation and editing. Fun Easter egg for the fans out there! All in all, Light Prism was a rewarding project to work on, and I think we’re all happy with the final look of the video and the way it fits with the beautiful song Daniel wrote.”
“The director (drew/bassist) and I put our heads together to come up with some aesthetic stylings that would fit thematically for the video, and from there the creativity bloomed,” said Zoon. “We immediately started experimenting with new lighting techniques that essentially formed the visual backbone of the video.”Light Prism” is a memory college. Parts of it are from my time teaching around turtle island. While other imagery’s are of My home town Selkirk. Selkirk was effected heavily by drugs and gangs and with that came deaths of youth whom Id known. So musically I wanted it to be gentle. I didn’t want the song to have a chorus with a vocal melody so I created a sample from scratch , spliced it up and reversed it to create an abstract instrumental melody. “Light prism” is also about reflection and being able to put things to rest.”
