Music Video for Momus – “Virtual Reality”

My visual interpretation of Momus’ “Virtual Reality” from his 1992 album Voyager. I was reading Derek Jarman’s book Chroma at the same time I was contemplating doing a video for a Momus track. I hadn’t yet watched Blue and of course the book got me thinking about the meaning of color, so I decided to finally watch it. I was really struck by the fact that Momus did a song for the film (his words on that here: mrstsk.tumblr.com/post/32951620476) and decided to dedicate the theme of the video to the color blue and my efforts to Derek Jarman. Officially given the Momus seal of approval!

Voyager is available through Cherry Red Records on iTunes and Spotify.
