AUDITORIUM - MT. MORIAH

This next video pick is Auditorium’s “Mt. Moriah.”  Directed by Ben Barnes, this black and white video follows two children trick or treating.  The young girl, receiving no answer from the doorbell and seeing a light from a window, curiously stumbles upon a scene she does not understand.  The framing of this scene, cut together with clips of the children in the car, demonstrates her innocence though she knows she should not have seen what she did. 

Ex-opera singer Spencer Berger is Auditorium, a unique project of genre-bending indie-folk-pop deliciousness blended up together with his impeccable voice.  Berger sings all the vocal parts and plays all instruments on his songs.  “Mt. Moriah” is a track from his upcoming album, The First Music.  This album is the followup to full length Be Brave in 2011 and Nights Worth Living EP in 2012.  Though he’s been somewhat quiet in the past few years, Berger has been prolific with song ideas, which he revealed to have been narrowed down to 15 tracks for the new album.
