Black Asteroid is Bryan Black’s newest contribution to the music world. Originally one-half of acclaimed duo MOTOR — as well as once Prince’s sound designer and keyboard tech at Paisley Park Studios — Black is now re-entering the music world solo with a fresh take on techno. His debut music video for the track “Howl (feat. Zola Jesus)” off his forthcoming album, Thrust premiered today.
Director Sebastian Mlynarski is the mastermind behind the intriguing world built in the visual. Through mirroring a desolate landscape, as if in a trippy Rorschach test, along with quickening jump cuts, Mlynarski achieves his goal of marrying Jesus into the surrounding terrain so that they exist as one. Black shares his own approach to the single and video with us, describing his vision for working with Jesus. The two artists initially connected over experimental techno after touring together in 2014.
