HUDSON MOHAWKE - SYSTEM

Random Acts is Channel 4's short film strand dedicated to the arts who have commissioned Warp Records for a series. Following up on the Battles video, Warp, LuckyMe and Nic Hamilton joined forces to create a visual for Hudson Mohawke's frantically energetic cut "System" of off his latest album "Lantern".

“A favourite from Lantern, with ‘System' HudMo was inspired by some tear-out Jeff Mills offset with those minimalist classical arpeggios - and when considering an associated film I thought of classic rave visuals and cg stock art of the late 90s where the grid of the city would be superimposed with circuit boards and processors. Here we updated it for 2015, commissioning our own 4K helicopter shoot over Manhattan which Nic Hamilton treated, placing in a CG environment that evokes Philip Glass ’1000 Airplanes On The Roof’." - Dominic Flannigan (LuckyMe)
