Stones Throw Records signee John Carroll Kirby has shared an accompanying music video for “Wind,” a new track taken from his forthcoming album My Garden.

The pianist, producer and composer offers a mellow yet lucid piece inspired by Ethiopian nun and piano player Tsegué-Maryam Guèbrou. “My friend told me a story of the first time he heard Guèbrou, that a desert wind drifted through the room as he fell into a half-sleep. I tried to conjure some of that energy here,” Kirby said in a statement.

The visual for “Wind” was helmed by Michael Flanagan, who directed the music video via a FaceTime call during the lockdown. He said, ”I wanted to take that half-awake, half-asleep transitive state and convey that with the visuals. John’s approach is so fluid and playful with time- and I tried to match that in the edit, smearing and layering movement across the track. The idea was to make a piece that follows the experience of listening to the song rather than projecting a prescribed narrative on the viewer.”
