BirdPen – Nature Regulate (2012)


Collaboration between BirdPen & Pooya Abbasian
Video animated & directed by Pooya Abbasian
with: Farshid Monfared & Faraz Abbasi
Music by: BirdPen(Dave Pen & Mike Bird)

The lyrics stem from thoughts about the modern world we are living in.  How data, television and the speed of technology is building up over landscapes, creating new metropolises.  Knocking on all our doors, there is no escape. In the end perhaps only nature will be able to regulate against its enemies and the world that it’s created.
The video reflects the lyrics and the sense of trying to save something, whether it is ourselves, a friend, a place of comfort, or the world we live in. The tension in the music is captured by the main character trying to save his world and let Nature Regulate.
