Rhythms: Jackie Greene partners with animation legend Bill Plympton for new video series


Jackie Greene has released a video for track ‘Modern Lives’, in the lead up to the upcoming release of EP The Modern Lives Vol 1.

The video is a taste of what is to come, as Greene has collaborated with Academy Award nominated animator Bill Plympton on a series of videos for a new project.

In collaboration, Greene and Plympton will be creating “a short film inspired by the songs from his new EP The Modern Lives – Vol 1.”

Combining the musicality of Greene’s work and the skills of Plympton’s animation, the pair have created a unique video.

The announcement elaborated on the pair’s work:

“I’ve been a fan of Bill’s animation for some time,” says Greene. “There’s a unique, independent quality to his work that is mercurial and thought-provoking.  I told him to let his imagination run wild and nothing was off limits. Which for Bill, is a normal day at the office.”

Plympton adds, “I had heard some of Jackie’s music before, and loved it.  But when he contacted me this Spring to create some music videos as a mini-feature film, I was totally elated. Then he sent me the music, and I was knocked out – it was so wonderful!  He gave me total freedom with my art and told me to ‘get psychedelic’ with the animation – this is the kind of creative project that every animator dreams about!”

Greene’s EP The Modern Lives Vol 1 will be out October 13 via Blue Rose Music/The End Records.
