Thavius Beck – Eye of the Beholder

1 May 2013

In early 2011 musician Thavius Beck and animator/director Steve Harms crossed paths for the first time and it wasn’t long before both realized their creative worlds would become intertwined. Both artists had ongoing interest in the others craft and wondered what possibilities could be had should a collaboration take place. Harms recalls seeing visions play out in his head immediately upon hearing Beck’s work as several animated music video ideas presented themselves. The two decided to team up on Beck’s Eye Of The Beholder track which for Harms conjured images of a self-manifesting, digital, astral queen looking over her creation.
The title of Beck’s latest full length album The Most Beautiful Ugly served as a catalyst for Harms to develop quirky personality traits for the videos main character. As the video unfolds the viewer cannot help but discover something quite beautiful inside what at first may have appeared ugly. Beck and Harms blend electrifying sound arrangements with a hybrid of CGI and stop motion animation to tell an unusual story taking place in this odd, alien, other world.
