“Journey to Journey” by Oerd van Cuijlenborg

Paris-based Oerd van Cuijlenborg made this music video for Miho Hazama’s debut album Journey to Journey. The synesthetic visuals, which exploit the tension between flatness and three-dimensional space, provide an elegant accompaniment to the music.

    I always enjoy Oerd’s work. One day, I’d love to team up with him to do a type of abstract Fantasia.

    That was a beautiful abstract music video. I like how you blended old ideas with new, like the lines as compared to the shape landscapes. I also like the way you used the three shapes, the triangle rectangle and oval as a sort of set of abstract characters.

    It’s reminiscent of some of the animated instrumental bits that Sesame Street used to show (and I mean that in the most complimentary of ways). Also, the short throws in a dash of Begone Dull Care from NFB. The basic shapes take on a whimsical life unto themselves and give an excellent visual pairing to the jazz. Well done.

      Thanks for the compliment, really appreciated. The Sesame Street (Jim Henson) and Norman McLaren NFB are two of my greatest influences, so if this reflects in my work that’s a great compliment. : )
