Yesterday morning, violinist Kishi Bashi released the second official video from his debut album 151a.
The video for ‘I Am the Antichrist To You’ is a touching stop motion animation, directed by Kishi Bashi and animated by former Pixar animator Anthony Scott (Nightmare Before Christmas, Coraline).
The track was originally written for Kishi Bashi’s band, Jupiter One, before it dissolved. He told the Huffington Post, “If we released it, nothing would happen. No one would see it. So this thing sat dormant, and I felt guilty for, like, a year.” Instead, it has grown into a beautiful track and elegant video.
The first video from the album, ‘Bright Whites’, has much more of a WTF element, but is still fun and worth a watch.
