With this spectacular music video for Julian Corrie featuring loads of ‘ancient’ hardware equipments – such as those 1.4 Mb (yes, M, not G, not T!) floppies – director James Houston cleverly reinterpreted the “chicken vs. egg” paradigm. To be exact, Houston had in mind to create an ode to these “forgotten friends”, so he “asked Julian Corrie to compose and perform a piece of bespoke music for antiquated hardware”. Thus the concept for the promo came before the music that, in turn, came before the physical video recording of the clip… Simple, short but awesome!
