Planningtorock–aka celebrated gender-queer song writer, composer, producer and director Jam Rostron –has teamed up with Chanel for “PlanningtoChanel”, out today via Human Level. Today the artist also shares a video for ‘Drama Darling,’ directed by Planningtorock and motion animation by artist Jenni Pasanen.
“Usually when I direct a video for a planningtorock song I know what visual I wanna go for because my songs are about me and my story,” Jam explains. “‘Drama Darling’ was different. This track was not about me but rather about me facilitating Michel Gaubert’s musical vision for a new Chanel show. So I came up with the idea of the ‘PlanningtoChanel speaker’. It seemed to encapsulate precisely all the elements of lovely this collaboration. My music, Michel’s sonic vision and Chanel’s iconic chic. This is the first time I’ve ever commissioned a motion video and the first time working with Jenni Pasanen. We had a lot of fun and I look forward to our next collaboration.”
A collaboration between Planningtorock and Chanel sound director Michel Gaubert, the songs found on PlanningtoChanel soundtracked the legendary Parisian fashion house’s Autumn-Winter 2020 show earlier this year. “I always felt that Jam incorporates operatic and cinematic elements to their unique sound,” Gaubert explains. “The Chanel show was inspired by French cinema from the 70’s and 80’s and Planningtorock blessed the show with their sound and gave birth to PlanningtoChanel.”
