Rufflefeather 'Amnesia' by Ro Llauro
Drawing from dystopian classics such as 1984, Fahrenheit 451 and Brazil, and existentialist questions in the works of Tool, Ro Llauro envisions a terrifying future for mankind for the Australian band Rufflefeather.
It's the story of the Operator (played by Rohin Thompson) - a worker who is confined to his workstation, his mouth sealed shut. As he goes about his tasks on his strange pre-computer device, the Overseer barks orders from the screen above his station. But from this bleak post-war dystopia, scenes from a world outside his dronelike existence start to be beamed in through the TV.
"The entire set was created from scratch in the back of an antique warehouse," reveals Ro Llauro. "Rohin, had his mouth shut closed for most of the production day - we only had limited prosthesis he could wear, then rip open."
With this sense of resourcefulness - including impressive art direction that delivers an effective retro-future aesthetic, and the repurposing of Cold War-era public domain footage - Llauro has created a convincingly bleak world to accompany the Radiohead-like indie-rock of Rufflefeather's Amnesia.
