I Lived on the Kwoon
Doing some random browsing I came across a YouTube video for Kwoon’s song “I Lived on the Moon”.
I’m a sucker for really well done 3D animation as well as animation that appears to combine multiple media. Coupled with music that sounds like Radiohead at their dreamiest, “I Lived on the Moon” is a beautiful walk through a dream scape. As far as I can tell, the song is about a father cautioning his son against letting other people take away his ability to dream and experience the dream world. The music is sublime, the symbolism is great, the choreography is fantastic, and the plant guy reminds me of a character in one of my childhood dreams. I don’t know much about Kwoon, but I do know an awesome song when I hear one.
