Kris Vango Explores Time and Space in the “Keepers of Time” Music Video

By Margaret Adams

Berlin and Athens-based experimental artist Kris Vango has released the music video for their newest single, “Keepers of Time.” The single is a part of their plan to illustrate the solar system through narrative sound, creating sonic and visual works central to each planet–“Keepers of Time” is the first of three parts dedicated to Saturn.

The goal of Vango’s vision is unitive–they reflect their own experiences blurring the lines between traditional male and female personas through their music to the planetary bodies. For example, Mars has often been likened to males, and Venus to females. Through their musical process, Vango is creating a space where listeners can intertwine the intimacies of the human experience with the cosmos.

The video for “Keepers of Time” illustrates Vango walking around different places of historical value in Europe, like medieval castles and Pagan ruins; they are going to places that feel like time-machines, bringing people back to the times when those places were built. It reminds listeners of who controls history, time, and the future.

Fans of Bjork, Grimes, and SOPHIE should check out Kris Vango’s new music video for “Keepers of Time.” Find this and more great music on the Alchemical Records Multigenre Mixture playlist on Spotify and YouTube.
