Abstract

My thesis project is a music video for a song I wrote and recorded called “Mad King”. The themes of the song revolve around my fears and anger towards our current presidential administration and the constant threat of death from nuclear war. The video combines footage of myself playing multiple characters in a near future based on my fears and anxieties. Along with the footage of myself, additional found footage is overlaid into the piece. This footage includes rallies, North Korean military parades, the inauguration of Donald Trump, test footage of the “Mother Of All Bombs”, and lastly alpha footage of nuclear explosions that I used to create a simulated nuclear attack on Portland.
