is the result of a collaboration between Montre Echo (Music) and videographer Benton-C Bainbridge, who shot the video in one afternoon at the New York Botanical Gardens in the Norwood neighborhood of the Bronx.

Benton-C Bainbridge is a video artist using custom digital, analog and optical systems to make movies, installations and live visual performances. In Chrysoglott he used a custom mirror/lens on his Casio Exilim EX-F1 to capture the 'planetoid' effect, and shot slow-motion footage of solace-seekers in the lush greenery.

The song title Chrysoglott is a name taken from an obscure pipe organ each bar being struck by pneumatically driven hammers producing a sound much like a celesta in an orchestra., hence he stuck his camera inside a piano then whipped the footage through Final Cut Pro and Motion to produce multi-layering tossed about with some exquiste slow motion and time lapse effects.
