Soundscape horizon-expander Maifersoni (Enrique Elgueta) is back with yet another mesmeric clip for one of the standout tracks from his structure-defying debut Telar Deslizante (Michita Rex, 2010). As opposed to most experimental videos (typically for experimental songs), “Caterpilar” doesn’t compress its data into a form or a moving window; it amplifies the poetry of the larva to an even broader grassland. This is a skill of the high-fidelity pedigree by video director Rosario González who seems to understand Michita Rex’s artists like very few people can. Any other avaricious filmmaker would’ve taken the easy path (romanticizing the Caterpillar-meets-Butterfly image), she instead, embraces the physicality of the song making an ultrasound of the caterpillar’s sonic appendages. This is the third music clip from González for the label, following the equally intriguing and analog-based pieces “Montreal” (De Janeiros) and “Armar y Desarmar” (Fakuta).
