3-21-09 KID606 and Pleix – Sometimes

Posted by Sean on March 22, 2009

Well, if you’re having trouble thinking up a follow-up for The Illness, then you’re definitely going to be stumped by this one.

Back in 2003, the French artist group Pleix took KID606’s Sometimes (off 2000’s PS I Love You and PS You Love Me) and used it as the music track for a remarkable CGI short. This movie doesn’t have the full song, which is over six minutes long. It’s still pretty incredible.

The combination of the mystical music and seeing matter as so plastic, so mutable and so monolithic gets to me for some reason. The fact that they’re exploding a skyscraper a la the Twin Towers doesn’t help. Or maybe I’m just tired.
