Steven Wilson – Routine

I didn’t follow for a while Steven Wilson solo career (Porcupine Tree), but this is something special in my opinion. This piece is in every detail perfect. You might be not a fan of “prog rock” but his is must-see piece. Hats off and many thanks.

Steven Wilson: “Amongst the hundreds of songs I have written over the years Routine has a very special place. It’s a deeply sad story of loss and denial, but at its conclusion the clouds lift and there is acceptance at least. Having worked with her on 3 previous videos, I knew as soon as I wrote it that it was perfect for Jess to do something amazing with. Even then nothing prepared me for the organic beauty and power of the film she made, a painstaking labour of love that took her months to produce. When we play the song live I look out into the audience and see people swept away with emotion at the combination of music and animation. To find poetry and beauty in sadness is a wonderful thing I think.”
