In My Room

Discrete’s immersive and experimental music video.
4/5

Review

Colin Greenfield’s direction on Discrete’s music video has brought an eerily beautiful visual experience in five minutes. With Ben Apgar playing the part of a construction surveyor, the video quickly sets up an ambiance of isolation and paranormality. The surveyor makes his way through the basement level of a building, the only illumination source coming from his lamp. The bubbling paranoia seeps in quickly as he maneuvers through the empty underground.

The music composition from Discrete has a compelling beat that meshes well with the unravelling visuals. The music’s build-up and drop add to the tense atmosphere, cleaving the thin line between the reality and the psychological effects eating away at the protagonist. The cinematography is mind-boggling – elegant and breath-taking at the same time.

The post-production is well done, adding filters and subtle visual effects that make the vibe of the video infectiously haunting. To sum it up, the collaboration works perfectly, delivering a gratifying experience. From the direction to the music and the cinematography, every aspect comes together fittingly to engross the audience in a bizarre dimension.
