Vertebral Silence depicts an animated, disquieting sequence of delirious, hallucinatory visions that perturb the protagonist of a concept album by local metal band Anomaly.

Using the track as a point of departure I came up with a dreamy, surrealist stream of consciousness in line with the moods elicited by the music.

This animation was executed using a combination of oil-on-paper, stop-motion animation, digital compositing and caffeine.
