Video: Stellar Om Source "Polarity"
- Words: Leo Maymind
Stellar Om Source (a.k.a. Christelle Gualdi) released her Joy One Mile record last week via RVNG, and has now shared a video for the album's lead track, "Polarity." Gualdi directed the video herself, and describes the dream that inspired her submerged, psychedelic visuals, saying, "While waking up one morning, an image of a Japanese girl dressed in a kimono and walking along the edge of a swimming pool surrounded by fog appeared to me... I developed the abstract narrative arc from this conscious dreaming: the women, the kimonos, the water choreography and the reflective play of light." The video sets a gorgeous and mysterious backdrop for "Polarity," which slowly morphs from a minimal, bass-driven intro into a fluid arc of echoing synth arpeggios and handclaps. Stellar Om Source will soon be taking her music on the road, including a MOMA-PS1 Warm Up show on August 24, the dates of which are below.
