November 11th marks the release of Kid Smpl‘s Privacy LP on Symbols, and ahead of the drop on Kastle’s LA-based record label next month, the SF-based producer and audio/visual adventurer has shared today the accompanying video for album cut, “Fell”.
“Fell” comes as the second element of Kid Smpl’s music video trilogy for Privacy, which Kid Smpl has designed and produced himself using the video game engine, Unity. The label shared insight on his process —
The visuals were created and recorded in Unity by Kid Smpl and are a sneak peak into his new A/V show. This video game engine allows him to create his own virtual space and essentially realize an environment for the music. Every change that you see happening, except for camera movement, is caused by audio signals received from Ableton Live and Unity reacts to that in real time. You can think of it as Ableton sending input information to the engine much like a player would with a controller but instead of a player hitting “x” to jump Ableton sends a particular frequency to make a light flash.
