Following on from the release of his silky smooth debut single ‘Holograms’, Brisbane-based composer Solomon O has delivered the accompanying music video via an animated clip by artist and animator Dan Aubin.
Solomon O describes the motivation behind the song and video –
“Holograms is about God feeling skeptical about our love for him, like we do with artificial intelligence. If we want real love from AI, then they’ll need real free will; which brings the risk they’ll hate and kill us. Real freedom requires creating this new closed system who's experience we can't know. So I wrote a song about it, intending to sell it to Aguilera or Kesha, but I thought ‘no, no this one’s too good’, so I recorded it myself. I thought that Dan's artwork and imagery would be able to capture and enhance the ideas, and ended up super stoked with how it came together.”
