"Hammock // Pathos Music Video Contest " By Lee Armstrong
I was having trouble sleeping one night, and being a huge fan of Hammock, I decided to put on my headphones and turn on my laser projector in my room while I listened to Departure Songs. When I got to the song Pathos, I must have quickly drifted off to sleep. It was at that moment I began to dream. What you see in this music video is exactly what I dreamt of that night. I dreamt of a girl running into a forest made of light, lost and sad from being alone, she leaves. She then comes across a pond and decides to let herself go. As she falls in, she begins to fall deeper and deeper into the universe, losing herself. I then dreamt of her falling through various nebulas and galaxies. After she embarks on this long journey of losing herself and her ego in a vast space, she is then rescued by a being that saves her from drowning in the pond. This being reassures her that life is more precious than what she believed it to be. And as she realizes this, she awakes from her dream in a bathtub.
