Gentle Party - ‘God Complex’





Directed, animated, illustrated and edited by Eva Dominelli
Additional animation and editing by Ryan Quiring
Music by Gentle Party


Eva Dominelli is an Illustrator, Animator and Visual Artist based in Vancouver, British Columbia. She graduated in 2017 from Emily Carr University of Art + Design with a BFA in Illustration. Eva has been creating work and exhibiting in Vancouver since 2006, in a variety of visual art forms including illustration, directing music videos, animation, and print design.

Ryan Quiring is a motion and graphic designer who has created live music visuals for musicians at performances around Vancouver including the Roundhouse Performance Centre, China Cloud Studios, VIVO, and The Cultch.

Gentle Party is a chamber pop trio that pioneers an expansive sound distinct to their West Coast roots. The distinct voices of each member triangulates to create a sound that is dream-like, pandemonious, playful, and evocative. Harpist Elisa Thorn (The Giving Shapes, HUE) and Juno-award winning violinist Meredith Bates (Pugs and Crows) weave a lush bed of strings with acoustic virtuosity and electronic processing for the hauntingly evocative voice of Jessicka (Hunting, Jessicka) to rest on. Their debut album, Jouska (2017) was longer-listed for the Polaris Prize and enjoys radio play on CBC. Their sophomore album, God Complex, was released in February 17, 2022 and has been described as a “startlingly confident and accomplished second album” (Joseph Stannard, The Wire).

techniques.
