MUTE was directed by The Brothers Strause of Skyline fame and AVP: Requiem infamy a few years back and at the height of cyberpunk mania. It’s about a world where people can’t hear and there is no music.
Now, before you cry foul, yes, “Mute” was created by Alpine Electronics. It was created as part of Alpine’s long-term, global marketing strategy to subtly promote the 25 year-old brand in a fresh and relevant way to younger consumers. Having said that, Mute contains no blatant product information or corporate messaging other than visuals of the sound system. (via quietearth)
