VIDEOS: OFF THE WALL, ANGLES, +MORE

ANGLES video

Here is the first video from my LP ‘Between the Tides and the Times’. Live footage shot by Patrick Suddath/Pantophobia at Glasslands, Brooklyn. Other footage shot by me: Battery Park trees, Holland tunnel, Frey in Walt Whitman’s woods, girl fr Calgary, MP3 experiment in Hudson River Park, David Linton installation at the Clocktower.

 

Angles, according to Ranaldo, is about “…the distance between New York City and the Sargasso Sea, or some equally far flung place; in other words, somewhere between the times and the tides…”

Director Leah Singer writes:
“This song felt very ‘New York’ to me. Time moves at a different pace here, fast and slow all at once. In the video you see a girl running aimlessly yet urgently through the streets. The song implies that relationships move at their own pace too, watching time pass but always meeting back up, coming full circle with someone. The swinging guitar pays homage to Lee’s experimental work and Z Behl, the girl, has been a friend since she was a child. Josh and Bret from Red Bucket Films lend a hand. They worked with our kids on the feature film ‘Daddy Longlegs’. So it was a bit of a family affair. Highlight of the shoot: Used a GoPro camera attached to some helium balloons for the cherry picker alley shot. Wind got the best of us and took the rig up to a rooftop where the camera got lodged in a fence. We intrepidly found a way on a Sunday to gain access to a building, leap over some parapet walls and retrieve the camera. Thanks Josh! All in a days work and caught on camera too!”

  1. Excellent video. I particularly love the shot @around 1 minute into the video (girl, wind through hair, sun shining). The alley shot really fits that particular part of the song. Another thing I love about the video is the scene where the girl meets Lee and he doesn’t seem to give a fuck she’s around. Lovely.

    I rue the day that videos began to supply one person’s image of a lyric: I much prefer to “listen” to a song. I’m not saying there’s no place for music videos (I would surely love to submit my own vision of a lyric to the world at large!)

    Lee’s voice gets more expressive as he ages. There’s a bemused quality to it now.
