John Kaada and Mike Patton (a.k.a Kaada/Patton), share the video for the song “Red Rainbow” from the pair’s 2016 release, Bacteria Cult. Based on the short film “The Absence Of Eddy Table,” directed by Rune Spaans, the video is steeped in mystery and a sense of adventure, capturing a curious place where dreams and nightmares collide.
A number of collaborators were involved in the making of the original short film, including writer and designer Dave Cooper and producer Eric Vogel of Tordenfilm. Kaada provided score music in several stages, inspired by the progress of the visuals. A lot of the music heard in the completed film can be traced back to Kaada’s initial ideas, which were refined and expanded upon in parallel with the film itself. Patton is Eddy Table and Norwegian actress Ingrid Bolsø Berdal is Snip. In addition to voicing the lead roles, Patton and Berdal each also contributed voices for a myriad of other (and otherworldly) characters for the film.
