dandeacon600 Watch Dan Deacons 22 minute video odyssey for Americas USA Suite

Last week, Dan Deacon remixed elements from his “USA” suite on America to create an entirely new track entitled, “Why Am I on This Cloud?”. Now, he’s back with a colossal, 22-minute video for the suite. Deacon teamed with director Dave Hughes and pummeled VHS footage until it vaguely resembled an odd mix of Koyaanisqatsi: Life Out of Balance and Dave Bowman’s extraterrestrial worm hole at the end of 2001: a space odyssey. It’s worthy to note that all the art included was culled from talent across the world. So, good job, Earth.
