When filming sequences for "Beep Logic," the rock instrumental from The G-Man's "Audio Takes a Stand" album, the idea was to "assault the senses in ways that made you think of weird sci-fi movies from the past," says Scott G (The G-Man). "We found inspiration from a lot of the work shown on Mystery Science Theater 3000," G added.
Written, produced, directed and edited by members of the radical collective called FookMovie, the video for "Beep Logic" has been called a trip, a mind-blower, and a psychotic experience. "People have said they felt the 'Beep Logic' video was like going inside a psychiatrist's Rorschach test, the ink blot test," G states.
With some sequences using 10 images per second combined with rapid zooming, there are sections of the video that should be avoided by anyone prone to epileptic fits. "We call this a rapid-fire video," G notes.
The 12 instrumental tracks on "Audio Takes a Stand" each use maximum levels of harmonics and subharmonic frequencies in an attempt to affect the equilibrium of listeners who use earbuds or headphones. "The operative phrase to describe these songs was the subtitle we used when recording the album: sonic applications of hypnotic euphoria," says G.
In addition to the off-the-wall psychedelic video for "Beep Logic," there are also music videos for three other songs from the album: "Free Nude Photos," "Dreams on the March," and "Go West on East Avenue." All are available on Veoh as well as the FookMovie site. "You must be 18 to view the 'Free Nude Photos' video," G adds.
The "Audio Takes A Stand" album is available on iTunes along with all other albums by The G-Man.
