Jose Gonzalez Takes Us to Space In ‘Every Age’ Music Video
Whether it's his solo work or the music he creates with Junip, Jose Gonzalez has been viewed as an experimenter when it comes to music. So why not do the same when it comes to the videos?
To depict his new single, 'Every Age,' the Swedish singer-songwriter used 360-degree film technology to create an epic sensory experience. In the video, we see a team launch a camera into the air, which then takes us through the clouds into space and make it feel like a scene from the film, 'Gravity.'
"Basically its the realization that we are a fragile blue ball filled with life floating in the void and darkness space," said Simon Morris, who co-directed the visual with Chris Higham. "We wanted to give everyone the opportunity to roam space freely using a unique video capturing technique."
Gonzalez's music has that natural element, but this may seem a bit far-fetched. However, he explains that the cosmic visual does work perfectly with the images he makes with the song's lyrics.
"The lyrics [of 'Every Age'] fit well in the sense of living on a globe together and how it can make us wonder and reflect on how we can make this the best trip ever," he said in a statement.
The video was produced by Eyes In Space, which is a global collective that aims to fuse "artistic experiment with scientific innovation to open new worlds." To see the 360-degree version of the video, visit eyesinspace.com.
Gonzalez releases 'Every Age' a week after he announced his first album in seven years, 'Vestiges & Claws.'
