Me and bro-Marc were on our way to a Film Festival in Sao Paolo when we shot this in NYC. We had a bag full of 35mm, 16mm and 8mm cameras and stock and shot the crap out of everything in LA, NY and Brazil to reconstitute into exotic looking music clips once we got back to NZ.
'Bailterspace' has its origins in Christchurch NZ, but this video takes their trademark sonic guitar to the subways and streets of their adopted home of New York. Shot in 1996 it feels more emblematic of the recession era as a robotic businessman crawls on its belly towards redundancy on Wall St. It's a striking key image as he/its battery runs down in front of the Stock Exchange Building amongst oblivious pedestrians.
