Joy Division reanimation

Inspired by Peter Saville’s iconic design of the Unknown Pleasures album by Joy Division, C505 have recreated a music video taking this signature style and applying it to vintage footage of the band playing on Granada Reports (which was a local Manchester TV programme). It takes a certain amount of design machismo to mess with seminal works such as this but the piece represents a bravura performance by the digital art/design group. Yoshi Sodeoka has been making varying types of sound toys for a while now, with previous incarnation C404, but currently motion is being foregrounded.
