M83 has just released the LAST video in their M83 trilogy. While this breaks my heart (I’ve LOVED this piece), I’m incredibly pleased with how M83 brought “Wait” to life. In a collaboration with The Creators Project, directors Fleur and Manu and Anthony take you on a visual journey that no one should miss. M83’s music is super cinematic, and his soundtracks fit these short pieces so well.
About his album, “Hurry Up We’re Dreaming“, Anthony said, “I love composing music and making music with pictures in my head, it’s really whats driving me. Cinema is the biggest influece for me – even bigger than music itself, so this album is built as a soundtrack, as an imaginary film.” M83 has brought this film to life, and it’s just perfect. If you haven’t, watch Part 1 (Midnight City) and Part 2 (Reunion), and finally “Wait”. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.
PS: If you didn’t know, M83 was nominated for “Best Alternative Album” at the 2013 Grammy Awards. Congratulations!
