Troller are sharing a video for their track 'Storm Maker' off of the album Graphic today, which is out now on Holodeck Records! The video was created by Sean Miller who had this to say about it:
'I imagine a vast metaphysical space in which spatial dimension and elemental forces are fused with emotion, longing, and a pervasive nostalgic tone. Using Max/MSP Jitter, I set out to create shifting abstract landscapes that suggest depth, but are also flattened to create subtle tension. Nostalgia and longing feature a hint of somatic pleasure along with a soft melancholic ache, and I attempted to suggest this by depicting lyrical beauty with slight unease. I determined color schemes, and the pace of movement by listening to the track as I constructed these environments. In total, I created 5 virtual spaces, captured their behavior with the track playing, and then edited from these performances to create the final sequence. I used the lyrics and the structure of the track as a guide for timing editing decisions.'
Troller says of the track itself:
'Lyrically, this song is about the cycle of chaos and order in life. When circumstances force you to re-evaluate and humble yourself, there is a somber process of accepting your own limitations. These self-reflective moments usually teach valuable lessons to better manage the moments when you actually are in control. It's the duality of being a Storm Watcher and a Storm Maker. Musically, we wanted to have at least one song on the record that was pretty and catchy, so we sampled the drum machine from an old organ and switched off the fuzz pedals and turned on the chorus.'
