From the LP, 11 Songs Mostly Written And Played On Wednesday Evenings By A Band Called The Antikaroshi. Vinyl-only release by Exile On Mainstream: http://mainstreamrecords.de/
Video filmed and directed by Georg Petzold.
The video starts on a late morning in New York City, filming in a subjective manner. Different perspectives of the city appear, in addition to minimalist exposures of human footprints in different environments. This all rises up to capturing images of people’s faces that expose their direct response to their own inner worlds. While the day passes along, the intensity of traffic increases until night falls and blends from the distance into the silhouette of New York City. In the early morning the following day, a few people tramp along 125th street on the east side of Harlem, as the traffic starts to build up for the day. A wide shot over a river reveals the dark blue skyline of the city and all movement begins again.

With this project the band and I realized a long time planed collaboration. I created the video after they gave me the song INTERLINEAR for their new album. The rhythm and dynamic of this song brought me to the idea to show people experiences who live in New York City. I choose to edit the video in a way, that it has an unexpected rhythm with a few moments to hold on to, like they appeared to me when I photographed the video.
