Video: Trick Mist - Tampering Happy

Trick Mist Jars In Rows Gavin Murray Tampering Happy

Trick Mist - Tampering Happy

Info: The first of a series of videos from Dundalk electronic artist based in Manchester, Trick Mist (Gavin Murray), has just been released for the Jars in Rows EP's opening track, 'Tampering Happy'. The EP had it's Irish premiere stream right here plus an interview with Murray in October with the above song being a noted highlight in my review, adding visuals has certainly given an already great haunting track added legs. 

This video is part of the 'Gaps Series'. These are videos made for Trick Mist’s music but without his involvement in the process. Multiple artists were invited to respond to a song from the EP and in turn create a reactionary piece of video work based solely on their perception. Dance was choreographed and performed by Shona Roberts whilst the video was shot and edited by Steve Blower. 

On the song itself Murray shares; ''Tampering Happy' is a song about change and the attitudes surrounding it. It's an exploration into how changed and lack of change is viewed. Whether people embrace it, resist it, wait for it or demand it, change is a force in our lives that is constantly charged. Apathy and activism are objectively explored and the contemporary 'trickle down' theory never seems far away. 

Videos from the series will be released every 2 weeks throughout the months of December 2015 and January 2016 and will continue to be featured on this site.
