CIRCLE OF DUST Releases "Contagion" Music Video
Industrial rock legend CIRCLE OF DUST has released a music video for his track “Contagion.” This is the first-ever music music video to be created using iOS “reality distortion” app Hyperspektiv, which was developed by a three-man team including founding Glitch Mob member Justin Boreta. Watch the music video for “Contagion” here:
The real time video and audio app uses an intuitive, touch-based approach, allowing users to dive right into using visual effects. The results are high quality productions that prior to now, would require both powerful and expensive software, and years of experience. With Hyperspektiv, this is now possible on an iPhone. The app has already been featured on The Wall Street Journal and The Creator's Project.
Fans can “Spread the Contagion” by downloading the song for FREE at CircleofDust.net, purchasing Hyperspektiv in the App Store, and submitting up to :30 of original footage for a crowdsourced version of the music video to be released at a later date.
CIRCLE OF DUST is the brainchild of Klayton - who is most well-known for his project Celldweller, and owning the independent record label FiXT.
About CIRCLE OF DUST:
Circle of Dust, the 90s industrial / electronic-rock project created by visionary artist/producer Klayton, marked the beginning of the musical career of the man who later went on to create independent success as Celldweller, as well as forming his own label - FIXT. Along with four full-length Circle of Dust albums in the 90s (Circle of Dust, Brainchild, Metamorphosis, Disengage), Klayton created a side-project under the name Argyle Park, which featured a vast collection of guest collaborators, including Tommy Victor of Prong, J.G. Thirlwell of Foetus and Mark Salomon (Stavesacre/Crucified).
Locked away collecting "dust" for 20+ years, the rights to the Circle of Dust & Argyle Park albums were unavailable to Klayton as the original labels they were signed to shut down in the mid-90s. After 2 decades of pursuing a deal to regain ownership of the albums, Klayton was finally able to reclaim the rights in 2015.
As Klayton began planning the remastering and re-release of the original albums, a new idea began to grow. He decided to not only re-release each album, but to fully resurrect the project and create a new full-length Circle of Dust album, to be released December 2016, nearly 20 years after the last Circle of Dust release.
Not only are all the re-releases being remastered, but each will include demos, unreleased bonus tracks, acoustic/alternate versions of tracks as well as some new remixes, with each album being released every 8 weeks, starting with the Self-Titled on March 4th, 2016.
