VIDEO: “Whippoorwill” by Clock Opera

Here, new Clock Opera single, ‘Whippoorwill’ throbs like an open wound, its narcotic churn reflecting the myths and legends about the titular bird being a vessel for souls after death. Clock Opera member Andy West made the video using images from still photographs that he cut out, scribbled over and brought to life using a combination of stop-frame and digital animation. He said on the video:

As legend has it, the Whippoorwill can sense a soul departing and capture it as it flees. This video tells the story of a man whose soul has been caught in the forested netherworld of the Whippoorwill and charts his journey through this ghostly plane of existence and onto the next.”
