Watch the otherworldly video for 'Knots' by Ben Chatwin - taken from recent album 'Staccato Signals'.
Directed by Zak Emerson, the gripping video tells the abstracted story of birth and becoming – an intriguing, odd, yet cinematic journey into Ben’s incredibly rich musical world of both twisted darkness and the lightest poetic humanity.
The film's imagery investigates themes Ben has been exploring in his music: the natural vs man-made, rural vs urban, spiritual vs. technological.
'The music strongly makes me see imagery of this kind', Zak said. 'Primal textures like simple evolutionary development: glistening sea weed, rock, bone, delicate structures, oil, scratched urbanity. Ben also felt these were relevant and powerful images to use. I was excited when he revealed these were the kinds of names he’d already chosen for tracks. The stars aligned.'
