Mojo is a computer-generated music video created by animator and music producer Jeremy Kamal, who presents viewers with a future in which afro-American values are “the predominant cultural model”.
In Hartley’s vision, vast machines operated by music producers move over a flood plain landscape, using bass notes from amplified music to vibrate bodies of water.
These vibrations displace the water so that it irrigates the surrounding soil, watering plants distributed by seed-dropping drones.
The music video portrays a world in which automation has removed the need for manual human labour and the Earth’s landscape has become a platform for self-expression rather than a resource that needs to be exploited.
Kamal created the track used in the music video in collaboration with music producer Nate Buttel.
