The latest video from Helado Negro might just blow your mind. Layered clips of Helado Negro (aka Roberto Carlos Lange) each take on different parts of the song, having a virtual conversation within the song. The inbetween shots provide visual metaphors for the lyrics.
His music uses loops, samples and field recordings to work into a composition, and will just as easily hack an idea apart as he will preserve it. "This music is about so much, and it might take some time for everyone to listen to it. I'm not in a rush, I want you to hear it at the right time." he said about his approach.
Asthmatic Kitty rounds that out with "I think it’s best to read into that name, to put it right up against yourself. It’s walking alone when you’re walking with someone else. Roberto Carlos Lange enters the room before his body does. Like light, like sound, like every single thing that travels on its own wavelength. As long as I’ve known him, he’s done what he wants. Not that Roberto, like the best artists, ever had a choice."
