Video: Koen Holtkamp, “Between Visible Things”

Perhaps best known as one half of the New York droner duo Mountains, New York’s Koen Holtkamp has a solo album full of enveloping guitar and synth collages coming out tomorrow. In this video for “Between Visible Things,” his delicately flickering modular work imbues footage of a European sporting match with a counterintuitive calm. The video, he says, “takes the classic era of The Netherlands ‘Total Football’ as inspiration. A beautiful fluid style of soccer which is extremely malleable and often highlights passing over high scores. The video uses formal masking techniques and found footage of a soccer match as source material to create moving graphic images that sit somewhere between collage and choreography.” Motion & Connected Works is out March 25th via Thrill Jockey.
