Mnemonic Sounds Music Video

Here is the music video for Mnemonic Sounds! I decided to go with an abstract art theme for the video. It ended up working quite well I think. The band came to my studio last week, and we had a great time shooting it. Everyone got to be involved, which made for a lovely variety of puppeteering styles. The video kind of has an old school Sesame Street vibe to it, and is very kid friendly, so everyone can enjoy it!

Mnemonic Sounds is also giving away “Keeping it Quiet” on mp3 for free (click here), along with an amazing remix done by  Colin Love (click here). The full album is available here on iTunes if you’d like to check it out!

    My 1 yr. old and I just watched the video and he was dancing like CRAZY!!!!!!! And giggling at the puppets. He kept doing sign language for "music" and saying, "Wow, wow, wow, wow!" (Pretty much the only words he can say…) :)LOVE. LOVE. LOVE.

    Cool! Thanks! This is great news. I'm planning on making some videos soon, specifically for kids, involving art and crafts and characters etc. I can't wait!

    Wow! Super cute. Love the toys. Love the simplicity and originality of it all, including the backgrounds. What a sweet song!
    Really enjoyed the butterflies fluttering. The moment when the color changes (like with the butterfly wings when they turn and the rectangular blue and white) goes so well with the music and beat. Will certainly share this with my daughter.

    Oh Boy! or Oh Girl!
    my nephew is going to come … unglued!
    he constantly asks, "does that guy joel

    make is own video…
    Cheers to all involved!!!

    this is magical cheer. and as someone said above, just what we all needed! i love everything: the puppets taking on a life of their own, the contrast of serious and more playful approaches within the band members, and the slowed down smiling pan toward the end. i LOVE this song, i LOVE your vision of the puppets and the simple changing backgrounds (a nice metaphor for life.) the video + song combination is fantastico! xox

    Very charming. And it looks like you all had quite some fun producing the video. Which is a Good Thing(tm).
