Marielle V Jakobsons teams with director Tana Sprague and cinematographer Omid Zoufounon for elegant “Undone” video
“Never static, her songs are always evolving, albeit often imperceptibly, and their outward simplicity hides their deep structural complexity.” – Pitchfork
“After one listen to Star Core, it’s clear Jakobsons has been assimilating the astral elegance of Alice Coltrane’s most sacred works and buttressing her compositions with sonorous Charlie Haden–like bass. The result is one of the best albums you’ll hear in 2016.” – The Stranger
“There’s nothing else like it.” – SF Weekly
After the release of her album Star Core, Marielle V Jakobsons invites you to take a minute out of your day and breath to the soothing sights and sounds of her video for “Undone,” shot by director Tana Sprague and cinematographer Omid Zoufounon on the Yuba River.
Jakobsons recently debuted her video for “White Sparks” via The Creators Project, where she details the creation and application of her self-constructed “macro-cymatic” visual instrument, which she will be using at her shows this weekend on the East Coast as well as throughout the U.S. and Europe this Fall.

Marielle V Jakobsons on the making of the video:
“We woke up before dawn every morning to catch the first light before the bright mountain sun washed away the shadows. In the heat of the day, we shot underwater footage in the green crystal pools of the Yuba. At sunset, granite boulders emanated their days heat under glowing sky and glowing skin.
The lyrics of “Undone” are “Flight Underway/ Weight Undone.” The piece is about weightlessness in the physical and psychological dimensions. The dissolving body merges with the terrain and elements.”
