Wolfram is the brainchild of Austrian composer Wolfram Amadeus, who, when he isn’t creating “sound-scape” installation art or wacky music videos, also records some offbeat club music for DFA Records. The 32 year-old, Austrian-born musician has just released a homemade music video for his recent single “Talking To You” (featuring Andrew Butler). The video is, presumably, a screengrab of Amadeus’ home desktop for the duration of the song. During the song, he performs a kind of live ‘VJ’ (as opposed to DJ) session, on his desktop, playing a bunch of seemingly random lo-fi videos that he says were mostly recorded on his phone over the past few years.
“It’s all friends or weird people dancing at my DJ gigs or somewhere,” Amadeus told us. “Honestly, I’m just a lazy and cheap guy who tried to make a video that costs less than an espresso and takes about the same time to finish.” He said he’s been interested in parodying the “YouTube fan video” aesthetic since the beginning of his musical career, as is evidenced by his previous work.
His video-making inspirations include “Fireworks” ft. Hercules & Love Affair, YouTube’s Microwave Dinner Guy, Guy Fieri’s “sunglasses behind his head look in Flavortown” and Karl Lagerfeld’s cat Choupette. Bizarre.
Serious or not, enjoy Wolfram’s new music video for his single off DFA Records, “Talking to You”.
