The 1975 - Playing On My Mind

‘Playing On My Mind’ from The 1975’s new album, ‘Notes On A Conditional Form’. Out now -

The 1975 and Ben Ditto have curated an online exhibition of 14 artists responding to tracks from ‘NOACF’.
15 Lu Yang responds to ‘Playing On My Mind’.

Lu Yang’s commission for The 1975 is performed in the virtual world by his nonbinary digital alter-ego Doku, whom he’s constructed using the latest in 3D scanning, motion capture and digital modelling technology. 50 of his facial expressions have been recreated from ultra-high quality scans, while Doku’s pop choreography was performed by a dancer turned motion-capture puppeteer. His sneakers are glowing neon. His bare torso is lit up with incandescent circuitry. His hands leave trails of violet effervescence in the air.
“In the virtual world,” says Yang, “I was able to do things such as choosing my own gender-neutral body and creating an appearance that reflects my own sense of beauty, which are not possible in real life. I consider Doku as my digital reincarnation. He is me but someone else at the same time. Just like the Buddhist concept of alayavijnana [storehouse consciousness], he represents a stream of consciousness which lingers in different worlds and different selves.”
Unleashed from the constraints of having a physical body, Doku is free to dive into the mysteries of the universe and try to establish a greater sense of his own identity. “On a planet where time and space no longer limit our minds,” says Yang, “to live is to create and explore. Emptiness and loneliness become the ultimate romance.”
He shows us how our shared virtual world, the world of digital creation and imagination, the world in which you’re watching his film, is not so different from the planet without time and space of his imagination: it’s a creative place where we can play with our identities and explore ourselves, our many parallel selves, and prepare those selves for new dimensions and universes. A whole new cosmos of infinite possibility stretches before us.

    Ce ți-am dat acum este credință, nu dispreț, un anumit fel de compătimire speciala pentru soarele care îți luminează luna...bea.. Dar daca amesteci cu vin si știi tu ce,ai dat eroarea gravă Eu merg mai departe in treburile mele

    Daca nu știi sa dai cu praf de mers la cine te trage in jos,la direcția greșită a speciei si la talentul de a o ambiționa sa dea eroarea,o sa te îmbolnăvești mai rău. Treaba ta,ca eu ți-am zis,v-am zis. Cat trebuie sa se miște leul si lucid si sa adore natura, ca sa supraviețuiască,doar,nu mai vorbesc de restul,in orice timp si mai ales in timpurile astea. In zona ta se vede atât de clar cum direcția greșită suge energia sufletească, încât abia ca ma țin pe picioare. Si nu îmi place de loc. Este un coșmar aici,atât de adânc, iar tie îți place ca sa cauți in el. Daca nu cauți cum sa te ridici, nu ai nimic de oferit, nici macar artistic. A descrie si a lăsa lucrurile așa, ba a mai accepta sa te duci mai jos este nebunie curată si nu o sa îți placa simptomele si o sa zici, De ce naiba nu m-am ridicat la timp. Timpul contează, nu banii. Inca mai caut textul,nu este ușor,stiu,sa privești ceva cu simțurile,sa gândești o căutare parca nesfârșită si fara rezultat. Element cinci si boala Așa ca nu primești mai mult element pana nu găsești. Cum o funcționa sa vorbești cu stelele,pe care le jignești daca nu le strigi in ajutor si te complaci. Iar ele judecă. In starea asta îmi aleg singură ieșirea,ca vrei tu sau nu vrei tu. Sufletul merge cu mine ca spirit de urmat. Energia alarmă Daca știi acum si înțelegi se numește ca ești prost daca alegi eroarea ca talent.. Eu refuz. Rock OZN metals

    Any video featuring the real band you can watch 100 times and it never gets old...but these animated graphic videos are a painfully boring. I hope they get back to making real videos for the next album. They have such an epic catalog of masterpiece videos!! The City, Robbers, Somebody Else, Love me, People, Sincerity...just pick any one.

    I literally just discovered The 1975 about an hour ago. This music video is very different than the other ones I've seen so far. Is that for a reason? Am I missing something? Or is it just weird for weird's sake? The animation is beautiful, don't get me wrong! I just don't know what's going on lol

    lyrics Will I live and die in a band? My consciousness controls my hand She can't swim very well (oh, you wouldn't be able to tell) Let's find something to watch then watch our phones for half the time When we go for food, you have yours and I'll have mine It says, "Don't take these pills if you've been drinking any wine" Oh, these things, they have been playing on my mind These things, they have been playing on my mind I think I've seen the side of every road They all lead somewhere, I've been told Will I get divorced when I'm old? (Oh, why am I always cold?) And I met one of your friends and it was dead nice, he was fine But he said things that interest me exist outside of space and time Now, I know I should've left it, but who says that? What a sigh It all kicked off and it's been playing on my mind The whole thing has been playing on my mind I think it's strange that I still call you When I've got nothing to say The truth is that I still adore you And nothing really matters anyway And I won't get clothes online 'cause I get worried 'bout the fit That rule don't apply concerning my relationships See, I keep getting this stuff wrong, take me out, put me on Oh, these things, they have been playing on my mind The whole thing has been playing on my mind Oh, it's all been just playing on my mind

    I love the lyrics. "I won't get clothes online because I get worried about the fit. That rule don't apply concerning my relationships, see I keep getting this stuff wrong, Take me out. put me on." because it's really deep and also it's just so true for so many people as they don't wanna jump to conclusions before everything starts and don't wanna be judged before they're given a try. That's just what I think but I know im not completely right.
