Twin Sister – Kimmi in a Rice Field

“In Heaven” (Domino)

Co-Directors: Dan Devine & Bryan Ujueta
Editor / VFX: Dan Devine
Producer / Assistant Editor: Sydney Buchan
Art Direction: Andrea Estella & Taisa Rodriguez
Director of Photography: Kevin Hayden

“Kimmi in a Rice Field’ marks the second video off Twin Sister’s debut full-length, In Heaven, which is out now on Domino. Following up on their playful affair ‘Bad Street,’ the band collaborated again with Dan Devine, this time with drummer Bryan Ujueta taking over lead directorial duties. The video proves to be an equally powerful visual counterpart to the atmospheric track, based on a ghost story created and written by Andrea Estella (lead singer).

TWIN SISTER are offering aspiring producers the opportunity to remix “Kimmi In a Rice Field”, details, HERE.

Isak Nishimura… William Morris… David Byrne
Isak Nishimura’s bungalow… William Morris – News From Nowhere … Road To Nowhere – Talking Heads… 

図書館から借りた「きれいな風貌―西村伊作伝」(黒川創・著/新潮社)を読みはじめたら、ウィリアム・モリスの「ユートピアだより/News from Nowhere」(岩波文庫)のことが触れられていた。そうしたら急にトーキング・ヘッズの「Road To Nowhere」が頭に浮かんできて、”Nowhere” ってそういう意味だったのかしら …..と。そこでデヴィット・バーン+ウィリアム・モリスで探してみたら、デヴィッド・バーン・ジャーナル(自転車日記)の「02.5.11付: The House as Idea」に辿り着いてしまった。こじんまりとして住み心地の良さそうなバークレーのバンガローハウスのことから、話はウィリアム・モリスとジェイムス・ラスキンのArts and Crafts、ジョセフ・ウースターのスウェーデンボルグ・チャーチへと…..。そこでまたバンガローハウスを自分で建ててしまった西村伊作へと戻ってきました。
