Orb State is an immersive trip in a surrealist environment. As we come upon an orb in its natural habitat, we witness its harvesting and ascension to an airy state. Thus portraying an abstract representation of the automation of industrialization by its cold and sequenced aesthetics. The transformation is experienced through a fusion of sound and image resulting from several exchanges between the two collaborators, Faderunner and Johann Baron Lanteigne during the summer of 2015. The visuals are an integration of manipulated video glitch and motion graphics reminiscent of video games from the early 2000’s that were inspired and controlled by the sound. In the same manner, Fade Runner’s fusion of organic sounds and synthetic textures reflects the orb’s unstable state.
