Album Art As Music Video
Ira Marcks' 50 foot illustration walks the line between artwork and music video.
A music project titled “March: His Forearms were Tanks Now” by A Few Moments recently surfaced on the Internet. The project was coordinated by Jake Lodwick, co-founder of Vimeo and Collegehumor.com, who functioned as the liaison between musician Michael McQuilken and illustrator/storyteller Ira Marcks. In late February, Jake Lodwick created and uploaded a 43 minute video that walks the line between album art and a music video.
Ira Marcks created a 50 foot long work of art that narrates McQuilken’s music. Wanting to create “big art”, he created an interactive experience that is immersive and requires the user to disconnect from all types of distractions.
