Fat Freddy’s Drop Release Animated Video For Six-Eight Instrumental Ahead Of International Tour

Fat Freddy’s Drop Release Animated Video For Six-Eight Instrumental Ahead Of International Tour

Fat Freddy’s Drop today unveil the animated video for ‘Six-Eight Instrumental’.

The music video travels to Audio Cancri 55 in Galaxy SE 68, a distant galaxy inhabited by Blingler fish, I’m-Not-A-Vampire squid, Beam Daddy and big MD.

The alternate world evolved in the imagination of artist and animator Mick Finn; “listening to the techno grooves of Six-Eight and feeling the sense of musical exploration I hit the sketchpad to create some alternate world characters who would communicate their music via pulsing light beams. Somehow, they developed individual personality quirks in the process – e.g. the Blingler fish, the I’m-Not-A-Vampire squid, the Opticus and the Gallileo K”, Mick says.

“I was heavily inspired by nature, particularly the deepest of sea creatures who rely on bioluminescence to attract food, or a mate. And also life-forms with six or eight legs, or tentacles, and with intricate symmetry. Then the digital painting and animating began which engendered more six/eight/light/sound characters – Lobsterphonic, the Manteagle, Beam Daddy and the ultimate world of Audio Cancri 55.”

Hailing from Australia but now based with his family in Paekakariki, Mick Finn aka Koori Boy is a frequent collaborator with Iain Gordon aka Kuki Blaze in the group Kuki Koori, morphing live visual drawing and animation with sonic electronic beats.

Six-Eight Instrumental was released on ‘Special Edition Part 1’ album.
