I’ve recently had the distinct pleasure of working with creative powerhouse Roberto Carlos Lange, who puts out music with Asthmatic Kitty Records under the name Helado Negro. You may have heard Roberto’s work as sound design for the awesome collaboration between Blu and David Ellis.

Lange works out of Brooklyn and is in constant collaboration with other artists — both musical and visual. The cover of his freshly released album, Canta Lechuza, was shot by Eve Sussman, who heads up the groundbreaking Rufus Corporation, and Lange also contributed sound design to artist Nene Humphrey’s installation, Circling the Center, which just opened in New York.

My humble addition to this ongoing back-and-forth between forms is this animation for the song Obra Uno, off of Helado Negro’s latest album.
