Time-Lapse Across America With Dan Deacon

January 17, 2013 | Andy Cush

As far as I can tell, the Guilford Avenue Bridge, a multicolored Baltimore landmark, does not appear in the video for Dan Deacon’s instrumental track of the same name–but just about everything else in America does. Director Alan Resnick takes us on a time-lapsed journey across the country with Deacon, his bus, and his band of Merry Pranksters, as Deacon does that blown-out 8-bit-Boredoms-meets-Terry-Riley thing he does so well. Which is a lot better than the cheesy ambient stuff that accompanies most time-lapses.
