Korb – I’ll be gone

I’ve always been a sucker for a simple idea well executed. And right now I can’t think of a piece that achieves it better than this music promo by Lithuanian director Rimantas Lukavicius (korb), for Mario Basanov & Vidis feat. Jazzu, for the track “I’ll be gone”.

Taking the simple premise of using a cardiograph (Four of them to be precise) to represent different audio lines within the track, Rimantas manages to create something truly mesmerising. It’s one of those, ‘I don’t quite know why I like this so much, but I do’ pieces of work. I guess there’s something special about the piece being utterly devoid of visual clutter, and that so much currency is made from the right camera pans and cuts. It’s a ballsy move to stay with such a simple set-up throughout the whole promo and Rimantas succeeds in holding the attention without needing to introduce any further imagery. Hats off to him…

    I thought it was good and had it’s moments, but ultimately felt it dragged in some areas.

    Yes, absolute niceness this one as in terms of sound and video.

    Interestingly, even though it’s produced by RGB, as it appears in the credits of the music video, the song itself hasn’t really been released? Yet again it has been played on MTV Baltic rather often.
