Dan Deacon has shared a new music video for ‘When I Was Done Dying,’ directed by Adult Swim’s Off the Air.
The video’s an exquisite corpse style of collaborative animation, with one of nine animators, each handling their own thirty second segment of the song. See the full list of credits below or at Off the Air. It marks the first time for both Deacon and Off the Air to work on a music video in this style, but the second time they’ve collaborated on a music video, following the video for 2012’s America’s “USA“ 22 minute orchestral suite.

More about the Off the Air
Off The Air is a late-night video mixtape which has been airing at 4:00 a.m. (ET, PT) on Adult Swim since 2011. Created by Dave Hughes, and produced by Cody DeMatteis and Alan Steadman, each episode is a collection of experimental shorts, animations, music videos, and visual ephemera loosely based around a theme, which is the title of the episode. The shorts are presented as a continuous stream, with no titles, host or introduction, often blending from one piece to the next.
