Vague Rilis Video Klip “A Giant Blur”

Akhir bulan biasanya identik dengan ke-nelongso-an akan masalah pundi-pundi di dompet, namun khusus akhir bulan ini saya nggak merasakan itu. Kenapa? Soalnya saya mah udah dikirim uang lagi sama mamah. Heu. Hampura sombong. Tapi selain itu, akhir bulan ini saya juga dibikin seneng karena Vague merilis video klip. Wow!

Vague yang terdiri dari Yudhis Tira, Januar Kristianto, dan Gary Hostage, dengan cepat menjadi trio yang dikenal melalui rilisan album perdananya, Footsteps (2014). Suguhan musik yang menarik dan penuh kualitas, akhirnya menjadikan trio ini sebagai kedemenan muda-mudi indie masa kini. Nah, selain warga kreatif bisa dengerin lagu-lagu mereka, sekarang kalian bisa juga mantengin tampilan visual nya, lho. Selepas melakukan kolaborasi bareng Kulturo, filmmaker yang terdiri dari Riar Rizaldi dan Adythia Utama, Vague akhirnya meluncurkan A Giant Blur yang merupakan single ketiga dari album penuhnya dalam bentuk visual. Nice!

Music video yang diluncurkan pada Jum’at (30/10) lalu ini, bisa langsung kalian ceki-ceki di kanal YouTube milk Vague. Di dalam videonya ditampilkan sesosok orang tua paruh baya yang terlihat membaca surat dari rumah sakit. Tapi saya nggak tau, itu isinya apa. Selepas itu, orang tua ini menghidupkan mesin mobilnya lalu menyusuri jalanan Jakarta. Entah apa juga yang dituju, dan entah apa yang sedang ada di benak orang tua tadi.

Ya udah, biar nggak penasaran sok cepetan cek kuota terus pantengin videonya. Tapi sebelum cabut ngecek videonya, warga kreatif bisa ngebaca dulu esay mengenai projek ini yang ditulis oleh Dwiputri Pertiwi. Sok siapin dulu alfalink atau kamus bahasa Inggris. Hehehe.

A Giant Blur – by Dwiputri Pertiwi

Life is often demanding, but sometimes we demand even more from it. When it does not turn out the way we would like it to, it is difficult to avoid disappointment—it is as if we had just been diagnosed with a serious illness, that illness being life itself. It is a truth that becomes all the more difficult to accept when we realize that the disease is also the cure: the faster we run away, the faster we will return. So here we are, running back and forth, escaping, creating and re-creating the giant blur. At this point, the only way to get even the slightest sign of clarity is to go for a long drive when almost everyone else is asleep.

The world rushes its way in a circle.

Exploring themes of uncertainty, fading idealism and the fear of death is what the Jakarta-based trio, Vague, sought out to do through their first music video. “The Giant Blur”, which is the fourth track from ‘Footsteps’ (2014), became the band’s first attempt to combine their music with visual components. Vague collaborated with Kulturo, a collective initiated by filmmakers Riar Rizaldi and Adythia Utama.
Nothing is clear.

It’s all a giant blur.

The video focuses on a middle-aged man who, upon receiving a letter from a hospital, spends the night driving aimlessly around Jakarta. As a whole, the narrative appears to be easy to follow, but the process of creating the video proved to be a challenge. “For me, Vague’s ‘A Giant Blur’ is a song that’s very hard to visualize as a story,” said Riar. In the end, he and his team decided that it was best to treat the character as the video’s unifying element—a bridge between the story and the song.
While a song is indeed capable of speaking for itself, “The Giant Blur” there is no harm in approaching it from a different perspective.
