Weirdcore, the self-proclaimed specialist in “extreme whatever-ness!” is the tour visual wizard for artists such as Aphex Twin, M.I.A., Simian Mobile Disco, The Horrors, GAMES, Annie Mac, Mos Def, A-trak, Mr Hudson, Miike Snow, Cassette Playa, The Wire Magazine, etc. His latest offering is the music video for Retro/Grade‘s “MindFighter” and Weirdcore himself admits the piece is “way more hi-fi than my usual stuff, but still a bit weird.” The video follows the evolution of two mercury-like humanoid figures who over the course of time arrive at a mysterious cloud of pink “consciousness”. My favorite snippet tracks one of these figures as it moves down a set of stairs, beautifully echoing Marchel Duchamp’s iconic 1912 futurist painting “Nude Descending A Staircase No.2” which was one of the most important works in the history of modern art. Duchamp would have been very proud. To see more of Weirdcore’s creations be sure to visit him at Weirdore.tv. To learn more about Retro/Grade you can follow them on MySpace and Facebook.
