Philippe Cohen Solal & Mike Lindsay present OUTSIDER – Bring them in (ft. Adam Glover & Hannah Peel) – 1st music video, directed by Gabriel Jacquel

Outsider is a project dedicated to the memory of Henry Darger, a self-taught artist. His most famous artwork is an illustrated story entitled The Story of the Vivian Girls, in What is known as the Realms of the Unreal, of the Glandeco-Angelinnian War Storm, Caused by the Child Slave Rebellion that he wrote during almost his whole life.

Named after the artistic movement, Outsider is a blend of music, animation, pictures, text, resulting to an album composed by Philippe Cohen Solal and Mike Lindsay. The lyrics of the songs are based on texts written by Henry Darger himself.

These songs are illustrated by animated music videos as a tribute to the artist’s artwork. Each song of the album corresponds to one of Henry Darger’s art piece.

The project goes even further, into an interactive project immersing the audience in the world of the “outsider artist”.
