Music pioneer Gary Numan unveils a brand new video for his stunning single ‘I Am Dust’, directed by Chris Corner – the mastermind behind audio-visual project IAMX. Gary explains:“‘I Am Dust’ was a very exciting promo to film. The wealth of creative ideas pouring from Chris was very impressive. He knew exactly what he wanted and how to get it. Plus he was able to translate those ideas into clear instructions for me to follow. It was hard work to be honest, but very enjoyable.”
Chris Corner (IAMX) adds: “When I saw Gary in Los Angeles performing ‘I Am Dust’, I knew I had to try to capture his immense stage presence and energy in the video, and to combine it with the raw, abstract visual world that it evokes in my head. Primal, subconscious, mystical, wild. We asked Gary to do some strange things. He did them without question. A testament to his trust and professionalism.”
