Periphery have joined forces with Race Service to create an A.I.-generated video for their new song “Atropos.” That track is from the band’s new album “Periphery V: Djent Is Not A Genre,” which will be released on March 10.
Vocalist Spencer Sotelo commented:
“The feel of ‘Atropos’ features a push and pull between pretty/melodic and dark/chaotic sections. That gave me the idea to write about a person who lives, and leans into, a completely superficial lifestyle, and the destructive aftermath of what doing so brings about, not just in that person’s life, but in the world around them. I think the video captures the lyrical essence in its visuals really well, and I’m excited for everyone to enjoy it along with the song.”
Director Rod Chong (Race Service) added:
“’Atropos’ delves into a surreal world of darkness with a mix of live action and A.I. processed visuals, motion GFX. The irony of using A.I. to bring a music video about A.I. to life is not lost on us. Our aim was to portray humanity’s media fixation, even amidst a war-torn world, as a new form of deity emerges and gains control over us. A captivating and hypnotic result.”
