LOS ANGELES, Calif. (CitizenWire) — Helping songwriters in every way possible, Golosio Publishing (www.golosio.com) creates music videos for artists who have recorded songs from their catalog. The latest is a song by John Scott G called “Smokescreen,” and the video is now on both YouTube and FookMovie under the name “Smokescreen by JSG.”
“This song is a groove tune that is modern and retro at the same time,” states Golosio production manager Brian Forest. “The sound of ‘Smokescreen’ is like Beck meets Sandy Nelson, or like DJ Shadow crossed with Medeski, Martin & Wood. So, with all that glorious noise, we wanted the video to show a wide variety of wild and wonderful things.”
Incorporating images from several continents and many decades, the video features female dancers, vintage aircraft, whips, wild animals, travel destinations, statues, electronic devices, time-lapse photography, and an editing approach that blends the concepts of Eisenstein and the art movement known as Dada. “That’s a lot for a three-minute video and it’s an eye-popping and ‘anything goes’ approach,” notes Forest, “but the song is so bouncy that viewers are just carried along for the ride.”
Looking for a term that describes the energetic video, several people at Golosio have made suggestions like “Neo Psychedelia” and “Collage Montage.”
