Gary Numan’s just about done with this North American tour to promote last year’s Splinter (Songs From a Broken Mind), but he’s still found time to slip out a new music video for the record’s “I Am Dust” — an effects-heavy clip that’s meant to recall the glitchy old days of VHS tapes with tracking problems, a nod to Numan’s analog roots, as it were.
From the video’s description:
Directed by Logan Owlbeemoth with effects by Omebi Velouria, this video was made using a Tachyons + video glitch synth effected live via a HI-8 camera and a CRT television to create triply, blurry, VHS-style images of Gary Numan as he sings the song. In a nod to Gary’s analogue roots, no computer post production was used in the making of this video.
Check out the clip, which premiered at Brooklyn Vegan, below, along with Numan’s remaining tour dates.
Gary Numan tour dates:
April 3: Middle of the Map Festival, St Louis, MO
April 4: Gothic Theatre, Denver, CO
April 6: The Fillmore, San Francisco, CA
