Battles

Wales, 2007

UVA’s first live-action music video was created in 2007 for Tonto, a song by Battles.

A unique LED installation was created for a disused Welsh slate mine, making it an audio synchronised field of light contrasting with the rugged terrain. The video consists of documentation of the band’s marathon 11-hour performance, as well as a series of time-lapse pieces from the surrounding geography.

The cover artwork for Tonto is also taken from the shoot, and designed by UVA.
