“Is this the intro to a TV show about an orbital prison cell chained to freely roaming organism? The sculpture's burden is the prison of another organism it cannot communicate with. In certain cases the imprisoned organism could become a cipher through which its captor speaks.”

We're still digesting Oneohtrix Point Never's acclaimed Garden of Delete, but rather than promote it with a regular music video, the electronic musician also known as Daniel Lopatin has shared a clip called "Repossession Sequence."
The three-minute clip is made up of short extracts of a few songs from Garden of Delete plus some original material. It all makes for a disorienting collage of electronic sounds that range from poignantly melodic to freaky and experimental. This serves as the backdrop for surreal CGI visuals that mix the domestic with the futuristic, and there's a scene that looks a bit like an urban warzone. It was directed by Oneohtrix's frequent visual collaborator Nate Boyce.
Watch the clip below. It's part of Channel 4's Random Acts, a series of collaborations between filmmakers and Warp Records musicians. -- Exclaim!
