Democratic moving image project “PSST! Pass it on” have just created their first music promo for the Cincinnati, Ohio-based band, Over The Rhine.
The “PSST!” model, loosely stated, is for each artist to create a section of video, pass it on to the next and see where it goes. The results here are stories of owls, a skate-boarding zombie girl, a gardener robot and a cult-guru and a jilted lover… Sounds like my Sunday.
I’m a big fan of this sort of “round table” collaborative affair. Differentiated aesthetics paired with a common drive can make something really eclectic and beautiful. The evidence is here. I wonder if PSST! is a pioneering model for the shape of creative things to come…Here’s hoping.
