Book of Colors releases ‘Hologram of Thought’ from self-titled debut

The premise is simple: Book of Colors plays the song for their beloved ones and films their reactions.


In a world filled with distraction, where daily existence is simply a passage to the future, it’s difficult to stop and take note of the present. With their new video for “Hologram of Thought,” Book of Colors challenges their friends and family to do just that.

The premise is simple: Book of Colors plays the song for their beloved ones and films their reactions. The close-up shots of smiling, laughing, gently swaying, or simply closing their eyes to connect with a distant memory is a perfect complement to the song. We do see the faces of singer-songwriter Andre Paraguassu and Adron — who sings alongside Paraguassu — but it’s mostly just eyes, ears, and mouths. The idea for director Brandon Ross and cinematographer Alison Daye Himes is to capture pure, emotional response in the sections of the face that show it the most. It’s the listeners reflected back at ourselves, which is something we rarely get to see. Stop for three minutes and allow yourself to connect with the video, the song, and your own emotions. The present is always the most powerful.

Book of Colors plays an album release party at Terminal West on Sat., Feb. 27. With Little Tybee and Hello Ocho. $12-$15. 8 p.m. 887 West Marietta Street, Studio C. 404-876-5566. www.terminalwestatl.com.
