Dropbear — Opiuo – Quack Fat (3:46)

Official music video for Quack Fat by Opiuo. From the album Meraki.

Electronic music is now at an age where its having kids, looking after the old folks, mounting responsibilities and a nostalgia for the days gone by. Gone are the simpler days of having to wait seven minutes for a file to upload or have your finger paused to record your favourite track off the radio. Now at a touch of a button we can hear a track released minutes before in the webosphere.

Opiuo’s single “Quack Fat” off the album Meraki has exploded with the collaboration with Animator Dropbear (aka Jonathan Chong). The bold and vibrant imagery is a visual feast of colour and movement created with a retro Walkman, 40 paper pyramids, 40 micro cassettes, 240 audio cassettes, 5,600 feet of video tape, 108 floppy discs, 2,812 Photos, and hundreds of hours of stop-motion animation! The result is a funk infused display that brings Opiuo’s song to life.

Dropbear has synced the unique stop motion piece brilliantly with Opiuo’s funky glitch-hop sounds in an ode to retro magnetic media and early computer games.

240 audio cassettes, 5,600 feet of video tape, 108 floppy discs and 1 retro walkman.
