We have a new video for “Tiderays” off of 2013′s Repave. The video, created as part of the 551 Project and directed by Kyle Buckley & Andi Woodward, features the Milwaukee Ballet in a beautifully simple video allowing the dancers to take the shape of the song and ocean reminiscent of Repave‘s album cover. Also today, we are announcing a new live date on November 30th at Turner Hall Ballroom in Milwaukee.
More info on the video and the 551 Project below. Watch the video for “Tiderays” above or here on our YouTube channel. If you haven’t already grab Repave on iTunes, Amazon, your local record store, and from SC Distribution.
From the creators:
“551 is a music and film collective that brought together over 100 artists to create five music videos for five bands.
In the course of two days, bands Vic and Gab, Volcano Choir, Victor Delorenzo, Grace Weber, and Jon Chi worked alongside a group of local filmmakers and creatives one weekend this past April in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to create the project that is now known as 551.
The belief that camaraderie leads to creativity is a key principle of 551. The project was the focused minds of dozens of filmmakers– cinematographers, gaffers, grips, actors, directors, and musicians — working to create for the sake of creating and growing as artists together. The fact that every member of the project donated their time and talent to these five bands fostered a smooth experience and a notably positive and friendly atmosphere – despite the controlled chaos of filming five different music videos with a massive crew among two sound stages at RDI Stages.
In conclusion, this project is about making art with friends, new and old, and helping each other become better at what we all love to do. 551 was an intense labor of love, but these hearts and minds did it because they love it.
‘Sometimes you gotta do something not for money, to be with friends and to get better at what you do and what you love,’ said 551′s Creative Director, Andi Woodward. ‘That’s the point of this: bring everyone together to make something awesome.’”
