The Night Walker
The Night Walker (whose title is inspired by William Castle’s horror film) takes its starting point with the story of a man terrified by everything, that as an anaesthetic for his sufferings, decides to collect biographies of famous people, by focusing exclusively on the moment of their birth and death. His history, told through the voice-over of an actor (Stephen Campbell Moore), becomes the subject of the song’s composition (The Night Walker) of the Londoner duo Smoke Machine, whose making-of is the central element of the work. The other element is the study or portrait of a man’s face, who could be the protagonist of the story and the songs.
The video installation is accompanied by a 7 inches album with the songs that were developed in the video.
