Typically, music videos translate a collection of noises into a series of organized imagery. As Elephant & Castle, ambient/electronica composer David Vincent Reep’s intricate soundscapes aren’t easily deciphered and assigned accompanying visuals. While that complicates the process for directors, it’s also a chance to forego traditions and restraint. In the case of the video for the tUnE-YarDs-aided “En Memoria”, that translates to a piece created by someone using Lightwave 3D while on peyote.

The clip features a slew of psychedelically-colored CGI, from the farthest reaches of alien space to a bug’s eye view of a barren forest. Along the way, common sights, like a beating heart or blades of grass, are given new shapes, hues, and purposes. Though the journey’s mission and means of travel are undecipherable, the corresponding images marry with the song brilliantly, resulting in a truly transcendental journey right there on your computer screen. Watch it below.

Reep’s debut album, Transitions, hits stores on March 13th via Plug Research.
