Wow. I don’t know why, perhaps with my own experiences with the subject matter of the lyrics, but this song and music video is really powerful to me. The song is called “Telemiscommunications‘ and it’s a duo by two really great artists: deadmau5 and Imogen Heap.
It’s all about long distance relationships and when people are apart because of work. The “Telemiscommunications” part plays in with how it’s extremely difficult to really be present with the person you love when there are all of these distractions around. It’s hard to be with someone by cell phone and often times things get interpreted differently. Imogen Heap sings, “This is just so unlike us / Come back to horizontal islands / If we could win just one small touch / Contact versus tele-miscommunications.” It’s a really beautiful song and in the video, various forms of animation are used to tell the stories of people in the airport struggling with their emotions as they are away from their partners.
Definitely a must-see video. It’s very creative and brings the lyrics to the song to life in a very powerful and artistic way. Check it out below.
