Antony Barkworth-Knight draws upon Tibetan Buddhist teaching for his visual for the Mercury-nominated modern jazz outfit GoGo Penguin.

"In the Tibetan tradition, Bardo refers to the journey experienced from the point the body draws it’s final breath to the rebirth of your spirit," Barkworth-Knight explains. "The journey would appear as a dream whereby previous karmic action can produce frightening images. Ultimately it is the process by which previous karma will determine the form of the next Rebirth.

"At death there will be various forms of light. A blue light is the light of Buddha – not the man but the purest form of consciousness.

"Using the concept of Bardo as a starting point we wanted to make a music video that works as a powerful aesthetic statement for the band’s leading single for the forthcoming album, Humdrum Star. Working with DOP Jamie Kennerley we were keen to create an ethereal piece with elements of loose narrative, abstract images and most of all something human that people could read into their own stories or interpretations."
