Space Cowboy was a promotional single to launch the release of the Monumental album. For the single, I created a very trippy, visual-effects rich video, which was shot in outback Australia.
Space Cowboy features mixing and additional production from legendary producer/engineer Mark Saunders.
Featured below is the artwork I created for the song which was printed on canvas and exhibited at a gallery in Sydney. The artwork is also included in the set of postcards for the Special Edition Monumental CD.
The Space Cowboy video was shot in Mungo National Park in outback Australia. The lunar landscape was filmed at a place referred to as The Great Wall of China and is famous for its “lunettes” which come to life at sunset. The shoot was strategically timed with the full moon which provides a second light source.
Direction, Visual Effects and Editing by Craig Simmons; Cinematography by Alex Harris.
You’re in my soul
You’re in my heart
You’re in my dreams
I see your soul
I feel your heart
I know your dreams
In my mind it seemed so perfect
In the end I hope it’s worth it
Uncelebrated each December
Forgetting more than you’ll remember
Chasing this elusive dream
Shaping every part of me
In spite of this and things gone wrong
The music plays it on and on and on
This simple song goes on and on and on
I heard your plea
I hear your prayer
I feel your pain
