PERIPHERY, released their sixth album, “Periphery V: Djent Is Not A Genre” in March of this year, has previously partnered with Los Angeles-based creative agency Race Service for an A.I.-generated video for the song “Atropos”.
Watch the A.I.-generated video for “Atropos” below.
“The feel of ‘Atropos’ features a push and pull between pretty/melodic and dark/chaotic sections,” explains Spencer Sotelo. “That gave me the idea to write about a person who lives, and leans into, a completely superficial lifestyle, and the destructive aftermath of what doing so brings about, not just in that person’s life, but in the world around them. I think the video captures the lyrical essence in its visuals really well, and I’m excited for everyone to enjoy it along with the song.”
Rod Chong, a Race Service executive producer and creative director, directed the video. He sheds light on their approach: “‘Atropos’ delves into a surreal world of darkness with a mix of live action and A.I. processed visuals, motion GFX. The irony of using A.I. to bring a music video about A.I. to life is not lost on us. Our aim was to portray humanity’s media fixation, even amidst a war-torn world, as a new form of deity emerges and gains control over us. A captivating and hypnotic result.”
Race Service is a Los Angeles-based cross-media agency who deliver unique and innovative brand experiences, special projects and media content. Recent Race Service-created experiences include partnerships with Red Bull, Porsche and ANIMALS AS LEADERS.
PERIPHERY announced “Periphery V: Djent Is Not A Genre” last month, releasing two singles simultaneously: “Wildfire” and “Zagreus”. Reaction to the ferocious tracks was equally fiery, with Consequence saying the songs “boast all the intricacies and prog workouts” the band’s “fans have come to adore,” while Revolver described the new music as “crushing and catchy.” A guitar playthrough for “Zagreus” arrived a week later.
The nine-song collection was produced by the band, with Adam “Nolly” Getgood contributing bass across the album. Jørgen Munkeby performs a saxophone solo on “Wildfire”.
