The more self-made music videos I come across, the more I realize the incredible impact of Norman McLaren. He was notable filmmaker for the National Film Board of Canada who grew to prominence in the 1970s, though he had been active even thirty years prior to that era. In collaboration with Evelyn Lambert, McLaren created a particular experimental short film in 1965 that lent inspiration to the Gothenburg-based producer, Sophomore. That short, and the contemporary new single, are called “Mosaic.”
