La Guillotine De Magritte - Overview Video.

Iconic hat and heads for Einstürzende Neubauten's official video.

Blixa Bargeld’s iconographic hat and 5 floating heads form the scenography for the music video for the current single from Berlin band "Einstürzende Neubauten". The pioneers of noise industrial punk recorded the track "La Guillotine De Magritte" in 2020 during the pandemic. We were honoured to produce the official music video for this.

Filming music videos in the time of the Covid-19 pandemic

Since no studio filming and tracking with the musicians was possible due to the pandemic, the challenge for this visual concept was to create the required 3D face tracking of the band members from LoRes video reference material in a ‘do it yourself’ way. The other was to explore how the combination of the hand-drawn 2D portraits with the 3D facebuilds could be used to interpret the significant characteristics of the musicians. The production was implemented in the game engine Unity, leaving further room for VR and AR opportunities. After producing the soundtrack for the Totale Tanz Theatre this is the 2nd collaboration with Artificial Rome.
