Down to Earth – Celldweller

An excellent entry in the unscheduled weekend music video, uh, list of music videos that weren’t scheduled but everybody knows I’ll post one anyways list. Yeah, that list.

Celldweller is one of those artists that dominates my entire playlist for days at a time. I’ve only got four of Klayton‘s albums but the album this song comes from is my favorite. End of an Empire is a story album that tells of the fall of a far future civilization and the competition between factions as it tears itself apart. (At least as far as I can discern.)

His music in distinctly electro, but includes aspects of heavy glitch and DnB, as well as metal and even orchestral elements. Klayton puts together some complex soundscapes that lends itself well to story-telling.

Down to Earth is directed and animated by Michi Lange.
