Featuring the music of Ikarus
Oumuamua - named after the first observable interstellar object that crossed our solar system - is the second piece of the album Mosaismic (2019) by Contemporary Groove Jazz quintet Ikarus. The video footage was recorded at a concert in Nik Bärtsch's club Exil in Zurich and tailored to the music by the bandleader and composer Ramón Oliveras. Like the song itself, the video plays around with repetition and patterns which all lead up to a surreal viewing merging both audio and visual.
