All posts by Vivian Hua

Vivian Hua (華婷婷) wears a lot of random hats, but has somewhat mastered globetrotting like a hobo and evading traditional 9-to-5 work schedules. She enjoys observing human idiosyncrasies perhaps more than anything and is a magnet for homeless people (a joy) and bug bites of all types (absolutely terrible). Through her work, she hopes to embrace the temporary while documenting the nostalgic, using divination and dream symbolism as guides through the cosmic maze. Additional writing, art, video, and other crap, like her astrological chart, can be seen at www.inallthings-patterns.net. She is the Editor-in-Chief of REDEFINE magazine, and quite appreciates unsolicited personal e-mails just to shoot the shit and narrow the gaps between human beings.

El Boy Die – “Dead Kings” Music Video

Unfortunately, El Boy Die’s 2010 release, Black Hawk Ladies And Tambourins, slipped any kind of major coverage on REDEFINE, but this video for “Dead Kings” will have to serve as a primer. A video collage of grainy archival war footage, the sights are incredible but haunting — showing mushroom clouds silencing soldiers to the point...Read...

Young Man – “Five” Music Video

Sonia Levy’s homegrown video for Young Man (Colin Caulfield)’s “Five” captures the bittersweet blues of childhood that Young Man’s latest EP, Boy, revolve around Crystals grow and dissolve, and magic emerges and fades, without a trace, like memories.

Wild Beasts – “Albatross” Music Video

Hopefully this isn’t ridiculous music journalism, but I just want to take a quote the YouTube’s ever-so-painful-to-read-comments to sum up this video: “Katy Perry lookalike + black swan vibe + great song + moustache = “win” Though I wouldn’t personally describe this video as such, it certainly captures some highlights. An Aronofsky Black Swan vibe...Read...

tUnE-yArDs – “Bizness” Music Video

tUnE-yArDs’ new video for “Bizness” off her upcoming album, w h o k i l l, combines manic editing tricks, modern dance, and lipsyncing by young students pretending to be Merrill Garbus. These elements themselves are nothing new, but as one might expect from Garbus, everything in this video is more about fun than it...Read...

TV On The Radio – “Will Do” Music Video

TV On The Radio explore virtual and blurred realities with their new video for “Will Do”. The nostalgic jam incorporates Minority Report-esque technologies and throws on geometric and three-dimensional filters for a video — and corresponding song — that is equally nostalgic and futuristic.

Fleet Foxes – “Grown Ocean” Music Video

This grainy video for “Grown Ocean” takes on a documentary bent, capturing the vibes of small, woodsy towns that could be as easily be set in the Pacific Northwest as in near the Appalachian Mountains. And perhaps this is the beauty of this video; without words, it seems to capture the entirety of Fleet Foxes’...Read...

O’Death – “Bugs” Music Video

O’Death are an “American Gothic Country band” — which might not seem to make that much sense, until you listen to their music while watching their music videos, which seem bizarre and ritualistic in a creepy, East Coast woodsy kind of way (and serving as one of the best interpretations of such). All the better...Read...

Girls Names – “Bury Me” Music Video

We had previously interviewed the drummer of Dignan Porch, Philippa Bloomfield, about her album cover design for the band’s album, Tendrils. Here, in this video for Girls Names’ “Bury Me,” Bloomfield flexes her video-crafting muscles by editing together a a wonky mixture of live video and projection, as possibly run through filter after filter, copy...Read...
