Django Django: il ritorno

115

A due anni dall’EP ‘Winter’s Beach’ (seguito dell’album ‘Marble Skies’), tornano i londinesi Django Django con ‘Spirlas’, preludio a quello che sarà il quarto album. Maxim Kelly sul video da lui diretto: “The approach behind ‘Spirals’ by Django Django was to translate the psychedelic trip through The Victorian technique of the phénakisticope. The visual illusion generated by spinning the disks at the correct speed coupled with the shutter of a camera is both confusing and hypnotic. I was drawn to how the animations flow in and out, drifting and duping the mind and then back again. This felt a lot like the psychedelic experience tome. The challenge was to fuse the old with the modern. The analogue and the digital. Updating and modernizing the technique”.
