The video for Agen, taken from ESTOILE NAIANT, is is an elegant exercise in typology, directed by regular collaborator Jane Eastlight. Trawling hundreds of image search terms to create a unique vision of a fever-dreaming stream of consciousness, Eastlight's ultra-modern psychedelia perfectly mirrors patten's entrancing and opulent sound.
The new album from visionary musician & producer patten forms a key turning point in patten's catalogue, connecting the dots between early self-released CDRs of delicately interlocking instrumentals, with the highly textured and detailed beat-led compositions explored on 2013's surprise 'EOLIAN INSTATE' EP.
