Daniel Avery releases animated video for Slow Fade

Last month, the London-based producer announced his album Song for Alpha, due to be released on 6 April via Phantasy.

Now, he’s dropped a video for the album’s track Slow Fade, created by London design studio Flat-e. The five-minute clip is comprised of suspended shapes and glitchy, fuschia-washed abstractions merging together and convulsing to the track’s beat.

On the video, Avery said via a press statement, “The thing I admire about Flat-e is that they recognise the beauty in mystery. They create worlds into which you can fall with your eyes closed.”

Flat-e commented, “To create the video for Slow Fade we used a combination of techniques. Our idea was to create something structural with no tangible sense of scale and then to degrade the footage throughout the video (a slow fade). We wanted to create something akin to watching chemical reactions or seeing the start of nuclear fusion in slow motion at macro level.”

Avery also recently announced an eight-hour set at London’s York Hall. He’ll play from 3pm (GMT) to 11pm (GMT) at the disused boxing ring on 24 March. Find more information and tickets here.
