SLEEVE NOTES:
“Thanks to Stuart Brown + Lisa More at NFT”

“Coldcut would like to thank everyone that has worked on and been involved in making this DVD possible including all the incredible directors, producers and hugely generous crew that have come on board and helped make this project in to a reality! Thanks to Vezzzzza for her huge part in realising this project. Nuff Respect.”

“Sound Mirrors
The Music Video Project

This collection takes the traditional music video further out of the commercial real, going in to the heart and soul of the medium and against the usual video-commissioning methods, where multiple directors are asked to pitch their ideas against each other with one eventual winner. Coldcut specifically chose one director to be invited – like a guest vocalist or musician – to add their creativity to each track the directors visually interpreted the track in their own unique way without direction from Coldcut or Ninja Tune. it’s the director’s creativity as an individual artist in their own right that is under the spotlight here. We hope you enjoy this diverse body of music videos. They represent a wide range of international directors from the established to the brand new, resulting in a myriad of styles, techniques and un-fettered creativity.”

“This has been a really exciting project, putting your trust in and giving the video directors an open brief is a leap of faith but I think the results show the breadth of ideas and techniques are incredible. Treating the directors as artists not hired hands has produced a much stronger and unique package”
Jon More, Coldcut

“These videos are reflections themselves, visual echoes of our music as seen in the eyes and ears of the collaborating directors, feeding back their responses lets Coldcut uncover a bit more about our own motivations and meanings within Sound Mirrors, some surprises there. We can take this work on, and assemble elements from the videos into our AV live show. As happened in music, technology and the DIY attitude are fast combining to change the world of pop promos, we want this DVD to be a signpost of that: An encouragement to redefine not only the relationship of director to record company and artist, but the form itself.”
Matt Black, Coldcut
