The Was

Soda_Jerk vs The Avalanches

The Was (2016)
By Soda_Jerk & The Avalanches, with Chris Hopkins & Sam Smith

Part experimental film, part music video and concept album, The Was is a collaboration between artist duo Soda_Jerk and electronic music group The Avalanches.

Constructed from over one hundred rotoscoped film samples, and accompanied by the sonic landscape of The Avalanche’s acclaimed album Wildflower, the 14-minute film is a psychedelic detour through the neighbourhoods of collective memory.
