Video: ITAL // “Only for Tonight (Dubout/Saviour’s Love Megamix)”.
This is a new video for ITAL’s latest single (on 100% Silk) by Aurora Halal of Innergaze and Luke Wyatt. It’s all VHS-aesthetic and gross spews from Daniel Martin-McCormick’s mouth. Here’s what Aurora says about making the video:
“Daniel asked me to make the video, and said that he wanted to lip sync and use ‘Touched By an Angel’ imagery. So, he came over and I shot him with my VHS camera with special lighting effects in 6 different situations lip syncing to the song—a couple normal or with sunglasses, and then a few with the ‘blood’ dripping down his face, which was actually molasses. It got all over him, so we shot him in the shower too, and later on the roof. The blood was all his idea, I just sort of helped make it look good. We edited it together and then processed it with my video mixer, putting in samples from new age tapes etc. We invited our friend Luke Wyatt to come over and do his signature ‘video mulch’ technique & add some choice VHS samples. Then we all 3 edited the final result, so it’s very much a collab. The result is not necessarily ‘my vibe’ at all, but the collected weirdness of the 3 of us getting together.”
Just like this blog, the band Mi Ami went bicoastal, with one-half in San Francisco—Damon Palermo of Magic Touch—and the other-half in New York City—Daniel Martin-McCormick (ITAL). (Here is an article I wrote about it for the San Francisco Bay Guardian.) The band is still performing as the duo Mi Ami (expect another blog post on this later this week) as well as their respective solo projects. If you’re in New York, check out ITAL, Magic Touch and Innergaze this Friday at this 100% Silk Party. If you’re in San Francisco, check out Ital and Magic Touch DJ sets in San Francisco at Donuts & Jock Jams present Big Fun at the Beauty Bar.
