The Instinct

by Steve

In the absence of a real post, here is another video. It is a rather lovely, and rather long piece from Mark McGuire and is well worth your time. There’s something quite hypnotic about it, with a very slow build that manages to keep your attention whilst avoiding slipping into mood music/ambient clichés. While the production is very clean there is something almost nostalgic about it, or at least something not too far from 70s Eno/Tangerine Dream etc. Maybe it is cinematic, or maybe the video is just pretty. Anyway, thank goodness for video embedding on WordPress – the functionality that allows me to keep a reasonably regular posting schedule without having to actually write anything.
