iM Video Premiere: SNOW DAY STUDIOS [The Violet Sound Sessions] #2: JULIE DOIRON – I Woke Myself Up
iM presents THE VIOLET SOUND SESSIONS’ second episode premiere – this week featuring Juno Award-winning Monctonian JULIE DOIRON and her track I Woke Myself Up, the lead track from her 2007 Polaris Prize-shortlisted nearly-titular effort Woke Myself Up.
Rather than interspersing the video with stock footage cutaways as they did in Ep. 1, the folks at SNOW DAY STUDIOS went for a hand-animated approach this time around, adding emphatic effects to the scene as it plays out – check it out in the embed below.
THE VIOLET SOUND SESSIONS is a secret artist session video series that features a mix of live concert energy, acoustic session video intimacy, high-fidelity audio, and post-production animation in an effort to create a new music video viewing experience. Named for Russian painter and art theorist Wassily Kandinsky’s 18th century experimental colour-tone operas that explored synesthesia through a blending of art and media, The Violet Sound Sessions are a merging of live performance, recorded music, music video, and interactive visualization.
Special thanks to sponsor venue 3030 Dundas West and Stone Hammer Brewery for their support in this new video series.
