Frontman Mitch Harris explains the idea behind and execution of “Malicious Code”: “We wanted to save this video for later, since it’s a completely different vibe than the others. Its unique, twisted view on rebuilding society creates a dark post-apocalyptic vision that I have not experienced before. The combination of music and visuals transfixes the viewer by enhancing the lyrics the perfectly. Malicious Code generates an invasive, vulnerable standpoint, an atmospheric mood beneath a controversial underlying message. ‘Malicious Code’ was an artistic project based on the concept of AI (Audio Installations). I created a montage from the short film by Floris Kaayk called The Origin of Creatures. Floris Kaayk is an artist based in the Netherlands. He has a unique style and truly embraces the concept of artist interaction. Floris was kind enough to contribute his footage to support the concept of A.I. A futuristic vision of a world after a catastrophic disaster, but due to miscommunication this mission is doomed to fail. The storyline of The Origin of Creatures is based on one of the most well-known tales about collaboration, the Tower of Babel. This tale is transformed and twisted and is set in an imaginary future, after the world is hit by a catastrophe. Among the remains of a devastated city, lives what is left of humanity.”

Here is a link for Floris Kaayk’s original full length, animated short ‘The Origin of Creatures’, which already won a series of awards in prestigious film festivals worldwide.

Kaayk received worldwide recognition for his viral “Bird Man” hoax video. This has attracted much attention to his work.”
