What Are You Looking For



Track 7 from the euphoreador late 2009 release called 'adrift'. When idealizing love this can lead to many problems such as madness and severe misconceptions that don't exist in the real world but only in the idyllic. Also when fantasizing on past experiences one can be led down a round of escalating depression. However when we face the truth about love it may be painful at points but also the most redeeming aspect to existence. (A special thanks to Jovonn Mercier for the use of her great photos!!)



Give In

Give In

'Give In' This is track 2 from ChineSeXXX American Idolatry, the september 2008 euphoreador release. The song is about how we need to be fearless and open ourselves up for the possibility of love and intimacy.



clear the air


clear the air

'clear the air' This is track 13 from ChineSeXXX American Idolatry, the september 2008 euphoreador release. The song is about how we sometimes loose site of our true feelings and our love, replacing them with anger or blindness and how we need to clear the air and start anew.



slum lord


slum lord

'slum lord' This is track 3 from the September 2008 euphoreador release entitled ChineSeXXX American Idolatry. The song is about standing firm in the resolution of who we are and not pretending what we aren't. Also not being afraid to find out who we are. The video is a new rehashing of video that was used in some Confession of Faith performances. This video also contains the decapitation of a chicken.



Kingdom of Wanton Shit



Kingdom of Wanton Shit



'Kingdom of Wanton Shit' is track 5 from the September 2008 euphoreador release entitled ChineSeXXX American Idolatry. The song delves into the lengths we go to find fun but usually finding nothing either due to our attitude or our narrow mindedness. The video is a rehashing of old video that was used during some Confession of Faith performances.



ChineSeXXX American Idolatry


Never Even Started avec le femme


'Never Even Started avec le femme' is track 6 from ChineSeXXX American Idolatry, the 9/2008 euphoreador release. It was filmed at and near The Three Gorges Damn and the city of Yichang in China. The lyrics pertain to the longing and pining for love and human intimacy that is created by allowing oneself to embark and engage in love; in a frank and excited way with new eyes. The video is a juxtaposition of this pining by showing what appears to be two young lovers do what lovers do, exploring each other and the world. The pain is created when one knows or at least idealistically thinks about what they are missing when they have fallen out of love or the relationship has ended.



Demand of Thyself




Demand of Thyself


This video was worked on for The Assembly project for Indyish.com. Different artists each had a week to do their part of the video. Marielle Quesney made the video and euophoreador did the sound and the music. The song is about how we have to believe in ourselves because we can't always depend on others to care.



Slowdown to a Crawl



Slowdown to a Crawl

The song is about how everywhere we go we bring with ourselves, us. Our mindset, problems and general mood. Whether this be good or bad, we, as in, our selves, are there. I based the song lyrics off of the 1824 James Hogg novel "The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner". Where the main character can't decide and doesn't know who it is that is terrorizing him. Himself or a former friend, or something else lurking in the middle. The video was filmed while I was living in Beijing and Sarah Gagnon-Turcotte operated the camera for most of it.



The Tides do March



The Tides do March



The song is about how we sometimes yearn for those that we love but even if we feel down by this, there is still yet more pertaining to the rest of the world that is in more pain and needs much more of our sympathy than we. The video was a part of a longer video that I made for Precipice Dance Theater's performance called Burning at the Theatre de la Jeune Lune in Minneapolis in 2003.



Stammering



Stammering



This video was made in 2003 and then set to 'Stammering' from the March 2007 euphoreador release 'lack'. The song is about how we blame each other for our mistakes, never stopping to see that we are equally culpable. We don't try to see ourselves in the other, or strive to forgive them or ourselves.
