Joseph Raglani’s recently released concept album, Of Sirens Born, follows the ebb and flow of a water theme. In his video for “Jubilee,” he gently awakens the viewer from an early-morning dream state with cooing, suspended chords and warm, transforming blurs of images. The haze of colors is interrupted intermittently by a distorted home video-style fireworks display and brief glimpses of the natural world in unusual hues. As soon as one ethereal image begins to reveal itself, another beautifully altered picture sneaks in to replace it. The only edge to the delicate ambiance of Raglani’s introspective, womb-like environment is a muffled record player scratch and a distant, winding bagpipe. Lulu McAllister
