“Volcano” is taken from EARTHEATER‘s Phoenix: Flames Are Dew Upon My Skin, out on PAN.
We are still listening very often to EARTHEATER‘s last album and it’s cool to see that the New York City-based artist, multi-instrumentalist, composer and vocalist keeps on releasing new videos for the project. After the incredible clip of “Faith Consuming Hope,” in which she was balancing between lust and religion, she has now unveiled a video for “Volcano,” the emotional climax of the record. The hazy images remind the lahars and the toxic gases.
The video was directed by Rick Farin and Claire Cochran of Actual Objects and was shot at an inactive volcano in California. About the visuals, they detailed:
“Volcano is a very special project to us — one we’ve been developing and working on with Eartheater for almost a year. We have been obsessed with her for many years, and were incredibly honored when she asked us to build a video for Volcano. The video has gone through multiple radically different versions, culminating in a magical shoot in California at an abandoned inactive volcano. Eartheater’s performance at the volcano was stunning — her power could be felt in the natural majesty of the location’s ancient ash and sparkling black sand. After editing the footage, we proceeded to project the video onto digital 3D scans of mountainous landscapes, as if we were watching the video from the sky. Volcano is a video about emotion physicalized — in rock and ash and atmosphere and in 0s and 1s.”
