Music Video Axis for Egyptrixx
Toronto’s Egyptrixx (David Psutka) returns to Night Slugs with his immersive second album “A/B til Infinity” Since his 2011 debut LP “Bible Eyes”, Psutka has been busy with various studio production projects as well as recording and touring with his side-project Hiawatha. His return as Egyptrixx takes the form of a multi-media collaboration with Berlin-based visual artist A N F – Andreas Nicolas Fischer.
The project consists of the album, the video for Ax//s and an Audio/Visual live set for the Egyptrixx world tour 2014.

Old Black is Egyprixx´ remake of the song of the same title by the drone doom band Earth. David Psutka had already commissioned me with the video Start from the Beginning for Egyptrixx last year and I am glad he asked me again for this one. Even though Old Black and Start from the Beginning are completely different songs, I tried to stick to a similar concept and develop a bleak artifical world, which is influenced by the soundcsape.
The graphic elements are a mixture of 3d-renderings and flat 2d textures aligned in space. The video makes heavy use of particles and simulations and was made with the open source 3d software Blender, with After Effects used for particle and compositing work.
