Video: Aleph "Omerta"
- Words: Taylor Fife
In advance of Siberian producer Aleph's new EP coming out in January on the King Deluxe imprint, here we have a video for the first track on the record, "Omerta." The video takes scenes from the 1985 French film Gwen, or the Book of Sand, by Jean-François Laguionie, in which a young girl journeys through a post-apocalyptic wasteland to relocate an abducted companion. The music itself is similar to other compositions sponsored by the Canadian label, and marries modern, hyperactive percussion with melodies reminiscent of Jean Michel Jarre and other synth-heavy Krautrock from the late '70s and early '80s. Aleph's EP, with the working title From Chaos to Cosmos, comes out sometime next month and contains remixes by Distal and Jacob 2-2.
