Video: HOV - COCO


HOV is the audiovisual collaboration of electronic musician Piotr Matkowski and avant-garde "media" artist Jaga Slowinska, both of Wroclaw, Poland. Musically, the collaboration has significantly moderated Matkowski's madcap house and electronica into muted atmospheres, with more delicate synth arrangements coming to the fore. Though we don't know much about the character of their collaboration or what exactly went into making "COCO", taken from a forthcoming EP they're set to self-release this spring, Slowinska's emphasis on symbols in her visual work has me seeing the video as a carnival of little fetishes; flowers and palm trees, rippling and turning within a pendant shaped frame, pulled from who knows what tumblr.
