New Colin Stetson video - To See More Light

Montreal-based avant-garde saxophonist Colin Stetson is truly a game-changer. His otherworldly vision, execution, and grand exclamation is confounding, deep, and insatiably provocative. Its an easy assertion for someone to listen to "To See More Light" and proudly bask in something completely original and intoxicating.

The new video, which comes from Stetson's upcoming album New History Warfare Vol. 3: To See More Light, is a hauntingly rich black-and-white footage of the Atlantic. Which, not coincidentally, Stetson often brings up during his live performances.

According to SPIN, Stetson often tells the short story of a whale in the Atlantic, saying, "There's this whale that lives in the Atlantic," he says. "Its song is off by a few hertz, which renders it unintelligible by all other whales, but it sings this song, continually for over a decade now, and no one will answer."

To get a better idea of Stetson's vision, head over to NPR to get a listen to the album before its April 30 release date. Otherwise, watch the video below.
