MUSIC VIDEO DEBUT: "Static Snake Charmer" by Al Lover >>> BRISTOL IN STEREO

I’m so excited this project is finally out in the world for all to see! I first met Al Lover when he performed at Far Out Fest in May 2018 and we became friends, hard and fast, starting with easily convincing him to join us at our unofficial after-party at the local goth night.

I hand-drew the title cards and used risograph printed images to create the stop-motion animated sequences. I also worked with my crew in Labrys Light Show to create abstract layers reminiscent of the movements of sidewinder snakes.

MUSIC VIDEO DEBUT: "Forest Shadows Enshroud the Styrian Castle at Dusk" by Crypt of Carmilla

This was a fun pet project for me to work on for Nashville-based dungeon synth artist Crypt of Carmilla. We shot on location in Mount Olivet cemetery, one of my regular haunts since my teenage years, as well as other locations around the city, including my basement (for that perfect dungeon look). I also enlisted the assistance of my collective Labrys Light Show to achieve the psychedelic liquid light effects throughout. Logo design by Kelsea Goesmann. Enjoy 🦇 —KLA
