Watch the music video now, exclusively on MILKY!
Earlier this month, Eastward unveiled his new single, Get Something Going. If you're loving the track like us and hanging for the visual, you can watch the music video right here on MILKY before its release!
The visual is comprised of Super 8 and VHS footage collected from his family and friends, dating back to 1985. Through stitching together clips of everyday, mundane situations, the musician has crafted and intriguing, mesmerising and sensory overload moving image piece that draws in the viewer.
Speaking of the visual, the musician shares: "Back in my Uni days I wanted to be the Aussie version of Darren Aronofsky. I had a short film premiere at the now defunct Longford Cinema in South Yarra in 1999. The experience spooked me real good. The short was a personal piece on my grandmother's battle with dementia and although the film was only 6 minutes long, I think I saw 30 seconds of it before bolting out of the cinema. I decided music would be my medium and to leave film for the wannabe Aronofskys. The clip to Get Something Going was the first moving image project I have encountered since then. For some time now I've wanted to get back to film and prove to myself that there's still some spark for moving image art left in me. I asked friends and family to submit Super 8 and VHS clips from family holidays but nothing beyond 1985. I'm fascinated by the effect time has on moving images, and how a relatively mundane clip from the past becomes more intriguing to the modern eye."
Eastward is the latest project from Eden Altman, a songwriter, musician, and producer from Melbourne, Australia. He has performed and co-written with electronic artist Opiuo, enjoyed long time collaborations with Spoonbill and Josh Abrahams, played side-kick and guitar for Abby Dobson, and once lived and worked at the Modern Opera of Paris as a sound technician.
