Braids – December

danse-serpentine-loie-fullerHot on the heels of the official video for “In Kind” that I posted two days ago, David Dean Burkhart has created his own video for Braids’ “December” out of a silent loop of modern dance pioneer Loie Fuller performing the “Danse Serpentine” over 115 years ago.  Despite the fact that the loop itself isn’t very long, the shifting colors and swirling clothing give the illusion that this is all one continuous take.  It’s all very mesmerizing and magical and I’d imagine that watching this high would be an entertaining experience indeed.  Again I’d make the Cocteau Twins comparison, but I’m also getting an early Björk vibe off of this as well.
