Music Video of the Day: Utopian Facade by John Carpenter (2016, dir by Gavin Hignight and Ben Verhulst)


Let us all come together now to wish a happy 72nd birthday to John Carpenter!

John Carpenter is not only one of the greatest horror and sci-fi directors of all time, he’s also an acclaimed composer.  We all know, of course, that he was responsible for the iconic theme song of Halloween.  However, he’s also released two albums of his own original, non-soundtrack music, Lost Themes and Lost Themes II.  Utopian Facade, today’s music video of the day, is the last track on Lost Themes II.

This video features a running android.  As you might be able to guess, utopia isn’t quite as utopian as it has perhaps been advertised to have been.  The android is played by Erika Angel while Stuart Morales is credited as playing “Avatar.”

It’s a very atmospheric piece of music and proof that John Carpenter is as brilliant a musician as he is a filmmaker.

Enjoy!
