Have you ever felt like running right off the face of this planet and straight into the bright, open arms of outer space? If not, Kishi Bashi’s new video for “Philosophize in it! Chemicalize with it!” will take you there.
Directed by Geoff Hoskinson, Kishi Bashi’s new video is like a musical version of the Cosmos reboot with Neil DeGrasse Tyson, except with a charming violin virtuoso leading the way through an cheerfully animated spacetime instead of a famous astrophysicist. Swirling circles transform from stars into planets, DNA, whales, and lovers, telling what seems to be the story of both a family and all existence in just three minutes and twenty-five seconds.
