THIS ANIMATED MUSIC VIDEO FEELS LIKE WATCHING AN EDGAR ALLEN POE POEM

This Animated Music Video Feels Like Watching An Edgar Allen Poe Poem

Stas Santimov’s morbid visuals give dark psychological depth to Eluvium’s ambient sound. A haunting animation of expressionist illustrations fill out the somber sound of American ambient recording artist, Eluvium, a.k.a., Matthew Cooper. The new music video for his single, “Regenerative Being,” is a seven-minute display of morbid looping vignettes directed and illustrated by Ukrainian animator and comic book artist Stas Santimov. Together, Cooper and Santimov fleshed out a concept for a video wherein a curious man finds himself in a strange place where everything is pre-planned for him by someone awaiting his arrival. Santimov tells Creators that the music video, like many of his previous animated comics, explores “strange people’s behaviors” through a linear narrative that consists mainly of looped scenes.
