Moby showed modern dystopia in ‘Are You Lost In The World Like Me?’

Moby Modern World Clip

Moby and his new project ‘Moby and the Void Pacific Choir’ published a video for the song ‘Are You Lost In The World Like Me?’. This anti-utopian picture of the near future in which humanity is occupied exclusively with their smartphones.

A black-and-white clip is drawn in the style of animation of Max Fleischer – author of Betty Boop and Superman. The main hero of the clip is a little man with eyes full of terror forced to observe indifferent mass of people who are only interested in sending Emoji, creating a selfie and catching Pokémon. Meanwhile in the real world houses burn, bullyboys accost defenseless females. All this is fixed by thousands of smartphones, which, in turn, are under cameras of thousands of tablets.

The clip was created by an animator Steve Cutts at the request of Moby. The musician calls this work “one of the best videos that’s ever been made for one of my songs. ”

Steve Cutts says:

“For me the video is about our increasing dependence on technology and about human interaction today, or a certain lack of it. It focuses on the way tech is changing us – how we have become desensitized.”

The track ‘Are You Lost In The World Like Me?’ entered the new album ‘These Systems Are Failing’, which was released on October 14, 2016.
