Here’s what director Susie Sie had to say about the #selftitledpremiere above, followed by selections from Boysen’s two full-lengths…
Since discovering his music a few years ago, I’ve follow Ben Lukas Boysen’s work full of admiration. I remember that I wanted to talk to him at the OFFF conference when he stood right next to me, but unfortunately I did not have the courage.
So it was a big surprise when Erased Tapes came to me right after my talk at Faux Images and introduced me to Ben for a possible collaboration. Ben showed me his wonderful album Spells and I immediately fell in love with the track “Keep Watch.” I was searching for images fitting its mood and wanted to create visuals which slowly and constantly change their shape,
showing depths and emotionality—something that starts from black, tells a story, and ends in white.
For me it was a big honor to produce this music video for him.
