Alapuranen stated in an announcement concerning the music’s visible:
The trembling stasis offered within the aesthetics of the music video for Richard Dawson & Circle’s music “Methuselah” appropriates the subjective time-frame of the world’s oldest dwelling organism, the bristlecone pine, translating that right into a mould that higher suits the human consideration span. As an instance time’s relativity, the video imagines and visualizes human movement as captured by the compound eye of arthropods. The seemingly motionless human artefacts caught in an Escheresque conundrum of provocative directionlessness evokes a temporal phantasm during which the fly-like velocity of the viewer’s visible senses reveals the fictional nature of our sensory notion. The move of issues is in essence static, rendering a stumble down the steps ominously motionless and nearly imperceptible. The visible choreography for the music was filmed in varied areas, utilizing the modern-day panopticon, the smartphone.
Henki is about for launch on November 26 by way of Domino.
