Eric Dyer David Gray debuts new song ‘The Sapling’

Noise 11 Nov 30, 2018

Gray brought in Eric Dyer to create the video.

“I came across Eric’s TEDx Talk, & some of the zoetropes he’d created looked incredible,” David said. “There was a clinching moment when he referenced the origin of the word zoetrope from the Greek words zoe (life) and tropos (turn), hence – wheel of life. It was a perfect fit for ‘The Sapling’, and at that moment I just knew it just had to be. We sent some time lapse footage of an acorn growing over to Eric for him to do his thing and create a new animation with it. Our video director Rex had the idea that we could take the animations out into the woods somewhere and back project them onto a huge screen while I performed the song in front. The end result feels like a subtle harmony between the zoetropes & the song.”
