Rethinking the music video with "Moonlight in Glory": Jakob Trollback on

What would a music video look like if it were purely directed by the music? If it were not a brand-building tool but simply a visual expression of a great song? Designer Jakob Trollback shares the results of his experiment in the form. The song is “Moonlight in Glory,” from David Byrne and Brian Eno’s classic album My Life in the Bush of Ghosts, remastered in 2006. (Recorded March 2007 in Monterey, California. Duration: 04:00.)
