BIG|BRAVE have announced the follow-up to last year’s nature morte. It’s called Chaos of Flowers, and it’s led by the new single ‘i felt a funeral’, which draws from the poetry of Emily Dickinson. Check out a video for it below.
“The making of this video employed a similar process as we do when writing music,” guitarist Mathieu Ball explained in a statement. “As we’ve learned to let the flow of ideas take its course, the act of creating works whether with fully formed concepts or an unfinished notion, starting the work itself acts as a sort of guide to where the final outcome may land. We realized that something more visually minimal than what we first imagined was the way to go.”
By using a single take, Ball added, “the performer (Robin) and the audience both partake in this visual and aural conversation together creating a more intimate visual space. The audience is led in and out of her intimate space all while being kept at safe distance. Paired with the lyrical content, it can be considered an apt representation of the elements of mental collapse – a simplified visual dance with the inner and outside world.”
