OWEN THOMAS "HOUDINI." (2012)
OFFICIAL LYRIC VIDEO.
When Owen isn't working with other artists, he makes films and music of his own. Absorb. released Owen's debut album, LANGUAGES., in winter 2012.
For each track on LANGUAGES., Owen created progressive "lyric films" -- hybrid pieces of work that join music video and lyric video. For the "Houdini." film, Owen performed Harry Houdini's famed suspended straitjacket escape trick on screen left while the words to the song evolve on screen right. And yes, Owen actually did the trick. Safely, after preparation and rehearsal. No studio trickery here.
