Zola Jesus – Vessel

October 4, 2011 by  

It’s not often you get an e-mail with the words ‘moth inspired’ in the title but today is one of those days and the person seeking a muse in dustiest of winged insects is Zola Jesus.

As Zola explains:

?In Vessel, science fiction, wave phenomena, and the abstracted metamorphosis of the moth life cycle are visually manifested in the surreal landscapes of underground mineral caves and icy, remote dunes. Themes of duality and transformation weave throughout, with Nika’s own voice revealed as vibrational patterns in water through the microscopic observation of Cymatics.?

The video in question, which you can see below, is for the first track, Vessel, to be taken from Zola Jesus’ upcoming album Conatus.
