Drums of Death was supposed to be a vector animation music video the the Chuck D and DJ Spooky collaboration B Side Wins Again. It was the first paid project Noah Olmsted and I took on after graduating from Columbia. Our ambitions were impossibly high, and our project management skills non-existent. In the end we came out with some pretty interesting work, but we could never quite finish the video in a way that lived up to our expectations. Eventually the project died, and not surprisingly, no one was happy with us.

Here's another discovery made while searching through my hard drive… This is some of the earliest work Noah Olmsted and I did as XV. It was kind of a technique / mood driven research project / art piece. It has its moments.
This is the first of the work Noah Olmsted and I are putting together for the XV Fall 2007 Collection.
