Hugo R.A. Paris - Orb of Truth

Published on Dec 6, 2019 Hugo R.A. Paris

A new release from supporting member, Lavender. You can find an article on the release here.

"Orb of Truth is the first single from Hugo R.A. Paris’s latest LP, Threaded Habitat (one sheet), which came out Aug 2nd on Jacktone Records (Berlin / Detroit - Fact top 10 Labels of 2018) and Beacon Sound (Portland, OR - Terry Riley, Colleen, Benoit Pioulard,...). This first video comes out in response to the album’s praise (XLR8R, Fact, Resident advisor), as Hugo closes the first leg of his tour for the Fall-Winter.

The video for Orb of Truth was shot in New Zealand by native artist, and now Portlander, Sam Hamilton. Entirely shot on film, grainy with minimal processing and edits, it echoes Hugo’s physical and immediate approach Sound.

In the video, individuals of various age / gender generate reflections by means of a mirror, metaphor for the Orb of Truth. The reflected images offer different representations of their surroundings in contrast with their immediate environment, and illustrate subjectivity in the constant friction between mankind and the space it occupies.

The support tour for Threaded Habitat is staged to resume early Spring in an engaging audio visual experience involving a vibrant mix of modular synthesizers, keyboards and percussions. Updated tour schedule can be found on
