Rhizome
This music video revolves around a man's growing discomfort at the absurdity of wondering whether life has any inherent meaning at all. Loosely based on the themes in 'The Myth of Sisyphus' by Albert Camus, the video traverses surreal settings and reality to sequentially progress the narrative. The usual design process employed for the production of a music video was reimagined through a non-linear audiovisual collaboration between the musician and the visualiser. Pravekha produced a primary track, a base beat from thematic cues, and a rough narration stitch which were given by the student as a reference pitch. The primary track was used by the student for the visual development of the music video. The timed animatic was then to be used to refine the primary track which had already been produced; this track was to be used for the production and final edit. This non-linear process made the project more collaborative than a conventional music video where the visualiser animates as per his or her interpretation of an already existing idea of a track or vice-versa.
