I’ve made media art for every song on Howling’s latest album, Colure—13 live performances on my video synthesizers, made while sheltering in place during pandemic.

The original artworks are released as Singular Editions. The series includes single-channel artworks and synchronized installations incorporating as many as 9 channels.

Ninja Tune has released thirteen videos adapted from the series of artworks. Here’s the playlist:
