JORDAAN MASON - NO WIRES
MUSIC VIDEO / 2018 / 4mins
No Wires is a single from Toronto-based queer lo-fi musician Jordaan Mason, pulled from their album Earth to Ursa Major. The eerie, synth-heavy song explores themes of estrangement and disconnect in the advent of digital communication technologies. Using images of bondage, suffocation, and drowning, the music video finds Jordaan trying to free themselves from the pernicious wires and cables that have ensnared them. An organic flame seems to destroy their technological shackles, but there may be no escape from the wires that pervade our every interaction.
