“Monuments” by Yann Tiersen

“Monuments” blinks with draped layers of tinkering bells, carefully expanding percussion and guitar line tapestries, and the softly innocent digital echo of Tiersen’s plight. It’s so beautiful it might make you forget ugly exists. That is until you see the video. This might be the saddest video ever in regards to the state of human beings. But I get the feeling it’s more of an exaggerated and darkly humorous reflection on self preservation, man/woman’s desire to be entertained, the objectification of suffering, and the removal of reality in the age of digitization. It’s a beautiful song, and the thought-provoking but disturbing video accompaniment is sure to spin your wheels.
