A stillness hung in the entryway, with a dusty, unlit chandelier
above. A raised coffin, piled high with linens stood in the center on the well
worn red rug. The runner ran from the front door, and back down the hallway, receding
into darkness. I

猫 シ Corp's Vaporwave, Mallsoft: Nostalgia for a pre-9/11 World
Having read, The Mall, Nostalgia, and the Loss of Innocence: An Interview With 猫 シ Corp. , what's most fascinating for me is an exploration of the reason for using a sound that's so reminiscent of the 1980s/1990s - and how that connects more broadly to west...

College - Synthwave
“When David approached me for this project, I was thrilled. Listening to Auto-Pilot, I envisioned a distant world with 1980’s American mall aesthetics. I wanted the video to resemble a fever dream, drifting through empty corridors and spaces that have long ...

I'm on a hillside overlooking a sparkling ocean in Korea. It feels like the north east coast near Incheon, but everything is older, ancient. Wooden boats glide slowly through the harbor below, and Yui stands beside me.  We explore the streets, looking for a...
