Sound Mirrors Videos & Remixes
Coldcut have always been fascinated with the fusion of music and visual and so the idea of them curating an art project of Sound Mirrors (their stunning and critically acclaimed album) was a fitting one. In collaboration with freelance music video commissioner Vez they set about taking the medium of the music video out of the commercial realm and directly in to the heart and soul, making the work a wholly artistic expression of the music. Individual video directors were specifically invited to add their creativity to a song, visually interpreting the track in their own unique way. There was no brief, no pitching against other directors, it was to be their creativity under the spotlight and just one constant - they all had to work to the same budget and if possible Coldcut were not to feature in the work. It's all about taking the director out of the realm of painter for hire and giving them the creative recognition they so hugely deserve. The outcome is a stunningly diverse collection of highly creative music videos directed by a range of different directors from the famous to the unknown. The flipside of this release is an audio CD collection of remixes of the singles taken from Sound Mirrors, as well as additional remixes of a bonus track "The State We're In" and the Coldcut classic, "People Hold On".
