What happens when you see and hear something that intrigues you from start to finish with that perfect blend of audio and visual aesthetic? There are times when you have an itch that gets scratched that you never knew you had until you experience something unexpected. This recently occurred within my lifetime. I’m always looking for that complicated, yet sophisticated, piece of art. Be it with music, animation, videography, or photography. With the mind being the most convoluted piece of humanity, every so often I’ll come across a piece of content that resonates within each and every sense of being human. Being a fan of video game content for most of my life has provided me with many ways of experiencing how to feel. On June 14, 2016 I experienced a piece of art that officially scratched that itch. Sitting there watching the visual and auditory creation being shown, I couldn’t take my eyes off the screen, nor could I stop listening to the audio track expertly woven into the experience. I was watching a masterpiece of cinematography. What was this masterpiece? It was a work of art between the actor Norman Reedus and creator Hideo Kojima with the musical piece “I’ll Keep Coming” produced by Low Roar. The audio visual treat is called “Death Stranding.”
Without further adieu, here is the masterpiece for your viewing pleasure.
