Michael A. Muller’s video for “Fixed Shadow” displays the axiom that no matter how far we get we can’t run away from ourselves. The multi-instrumentalist and co-founder of the excellent Austin-based collective Balmorhea, Muller’s drone work sets the course forĀ  an eliding, spectral pacing while deeply resonant double bass hits punctuate the subtle movement and strings drone in the background like cicadas. The video, directed in one take by Andrew Gallo, sets in relief a man lashing out at his demons, the desert landscape completely impervious to his inner turmoil.
