Cemeteries 'The Wilderness' by Michael Lawrence
Cemeteries – aka one man band Kyle J. Reigle from Buffalo – teams up with Michael Lawrence for this dark film for his track The Wilderness. A young man, played by Ryan Schira, breaks into a an old dusty warehouse and curiously, is enticed to burn it down by his ‘accomplice’.
“When Kyle and I first spoke about doing a film for The Wilderness, our common bond was an upbringing in the lost, abandoned, and beautiful post-industrial landscape of Buffalo, NY,” Michael explains.
“A palette of magenta and green with creeping moonlight came forth when listening to the track. We built a small narrative of a savant exploring a factory – symbolizing the cellular memory of generations past that once resided in the lakefront paper and grain mills of our hometown. The shafts of light and faint, distant memories are a view inside the cerebral cortex of two colliding versions of self.”
