Five Experimental Music Videos for Blonde Redhead by Mike Mills

Emotions (aka "The Dress")

Disasters at Sea (aka "23")

Burning Crosses (aka "Silently")

Rainbows (aka "Impure Hair")

Poses (aka "Top Ranking")

Here's your invitation to see these in person. (LAists only.) (thanks glutamat!)

"The first song I heard was "23". It was so big and so unafraid to be beautiful - what could be the visual analog to that hugeness? I felt that Blonde Redhead had found their own personal way to the ingredients of a popular song - the way nutritionists use proteins, carbohydrates, sugars and vitamins and our bodies can't help but respond. I thought of the elements I use in music videos: a story, an emotion, dancing/movement, a magical transformation. I chose not to compete with the richness of the sound but to explore poverty. What if I only had one element? How could I reduce that element to it's composite parts? Could I reduce that again? If I kept reducing, would I get to the hugeness of the music? Could this be the way to visualize the hope for love and transformation that I feel in the music?" Mike Mills

I like the Like a Prayer one (buring crosses)

ummm, so can someone explain the Titanic one? Mike Mills discovers youtube.

It's backwards? I like it. I imagine he got James Cameron's permission even.

funny you should say that, cap'n. along with poses/top ranking, it's the one that worked for me most. (whereas burning crosses seems a bit of a rehash of this.)

i also still like melody's 23.

Rehash, smehash. "The Dress" is a rehash of Glazer's Into My Arms, but that is obvious to most antvilleans, no? If I had the venue I would think thru this "It's been done before" dilemma. Perhaps someday.

how amazing would it be if music videos had the money and resources to actually make a self-standing video that compares to the epic size and cinematic quality of titanic

davidbowie, July 19, 2007 at 8:55:51 PM CEST

another experimental Blonde Redhead video.

^ that was like a boring family hike seen through the eyes of a cool camera. i wish something shocking happened at the end. like a morbid death of the baby or something

Blah, Titanic looks so Indoors studio is not even funny, I've seen 1.000 more videos with more belivable credibility than that Turd. And yeah overall didn't like any of this Clips by Mike Mills, or any of the stuff he's done really.
