Val has lost control of her life. Those around her deny the reality of the extraordinary experiences she feels powerless against. Realizing she must stand alone, she has only one remaining option – to find a way to fight back.

Starring Rachael Kahne and featuring voice work from Ramon De Ocampo and Erin Tawlks, 88:88 is an intriguing new short by director Joey Ciccoline. Set aside 14 minutes and watch the nicely written and well produced sci-fi(?) film. I won’t say anymore.


UPDATE: Here is a preview of the album (soundtrack) inspired by the film which shares the same title, 88:88, by Makeup and Vanity Set. It’s a collection of rich and hypnotic sonic compositions. The album will be available on Telefuture Records.

MAKEUP AND VANITY SET makes fantasy arpeggio electro 8-bit music. Squelching melodies and pounding kick drums are sequenced on samplers and laptops with synthesizers and handclaps. He has spent the last eight years as part of the ever-growing music scene of Nashville, TN, touring and playing shows across the country, where he generally winds up rolling around on the floor covered in sweat, wrapped in cables, screaming into a microphone and wearing his trademark ski mask. He has amassed a large following through his 8-bit remixes for THE PROTOMEN as well as his dark-wave 80s slasher-film inspired CHARLES PARK TRILOGY. Through Bandcamp and Last.fm, he has nearly 200,000 plays and has released five full-length records and three EPs. His latest record, 88:88, is his first foray into film soundtrack, serving as a companion to his brooding score for the short-film of the same name.
