I used randomly generated data to edit this video of Caged Animals performing “Too Much Dark” for Fast Food Music Video 2: Not Knowing, Adaptability, The Unified Field. The number of the cuts and the sources were dictated by a data generating patch, leaving me with control over the timing of the cuts. I also elected to make the video monochrome.
This exercise in music video making involved applying chance operations to all aspects of a deconstructed production process. Editing was also subject to randomization in a similar fashion, based on the number of video sources recorded.
Shattered Shards– the freeform, visual collab curated by wayfaring Brooklyn souls Matthew Caron and Rebecca Gaffney– is less of a directorial excursion than a freeform video jam session. No more clearly is this seen in their spastic, claustrophobic visuals for Brooklyn’s PVRE MATRIX (a.k.a. Daniel Moore). Taken from a set at La Sala, the video is built upon on a frenetic display of glitched video feedback, whip pans around the venue, and mirrored, kaleidoscopic original footage that’s all attack and no release, a sound match for PM’s tightly coiled, tension-riddled version of industrial music. – AD HOC
I shot it at the Niagra Bar on 7th and A because the neon sign from the cover of the record hangs there.
That corner of New York is really significant in L.E.S hardcore / punk history and I guess it was sung about in “New York Crew” by Judge. That track is one of mine and Turbo lead singer’s Tony Sylvester’s favourite songs ever; I met Tony through hardcore about 20 years ago and we’ve been best friends ever since.

“M00N” is more or less a reflection upon internal struggles, both ongoing and resolved which caused me to doubt a lot of things I was doing from relationships to school and music. After venting on that track a lot of those insecurities dissolved into nothing and I felt free from a lot of the turmoil which was haunting me. – Haleek Maul
We got our hands on the brand new video from Mishka Records newcomer Carrie Wilds. “Stay” is Wilds’ distinctive version of the doo wop classic by the Maurice Williams & The Zodiacs, with labelmate Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire dropping in to deliver his own experimental flair and Montreal beatmaker Lunice lending his searing production skills. – NOISEY
