Track of the Week – “Cosmic Convergence” by Tarsius feat. Archaster

It is a little-known fact that the song “Cosmic Convergence,” which appears on Tarsius’ LP Primate, was the second Tarsius song used in a film soundtrack. The first, of course, is “Deathless Gods,” whose video kicked off the musical build-up to the 2012 film Ang Nawawala. The film in question is Shift, which is interesting in that this drew a lot of fans of a certain young pop/rock singer, as a Q&A session I moderated after one screening revealed much to my amusement. (The singer stars in the film.)

There is only one extant video of a performance of the song featuring Archaster himself, and this was taken at the UP Cineastes’ Haute Auteur Video event at the old Freedom Bar in 2013. Oddly enough, the creative team of Shift were there (because director Siege Ledesma had a short film in competition, and won) and they liked this number.

Of course, tonight, we will get to see the official music video for the song, by Marie Jamora and Jason McLagan, along with a video for “Association Dues” by Paolo Ruiz. The launch concert starts at 10 with a set by Modulogeek, another of my favorite electronic musicians. I look forward to seeing you there!
