Tom Goss Featuring Matt Alber – Breath And Sound

Popular gay crooners Tom Goss and Matt Alber have joined up for a lovely new ballad. Goss explains the video concept:

“I’ve been dreaming about this video for years. As soon as we recorded the song I knew I wanted to shoot a lyrical dance because I’m fascinated by movement and even more so by collaborative projects. About six months ago I was explaining my vision to director Michael Serrato (Big Gay Sketch Show; Willam Belli and Violet Chachki music videos; and Neil’s Puppet Dreams). I told him about my big, complex, beautiful — but ultimately flawed idea — and he started getting as excited as I was and sharing ideas of his own. His ideas solved the problems I was having in the story and it became clear that it was something that we could accomplish together. If you think about it, all relationships are really a kind of dance. We want to be close to somebody, but we’re afraid to let them too close. We come together, we push each other away. We chose the movements to highlight that experience. This feeling isn’t confined to one specific kind of relationship; it doesn’t understand gender or sexual orientation. The dance of attraction and love is a universal one. The dance is the same regardless of the dancers.”

        If there is nothing left can you tell me why that it is you are holding on to me like it’s the end of the whirrled?

        Ugh, I’ve seen that video countless times, and I STILL get goosebumps when the curtain is pulled back, and at the dip at the end. siiiiiigh.

        JT: Thanks for posting that, through which I also discovered the linked video for “Handsome Man,” with visuals composed of sepia-toned vintage photographs. Gotta stop now before I get choked up.

      • netman extraordinaire

        Jeez, what’s this in my eye? I have seen Matt twice (once with Tom Goss) and I could see him a hundred times more. Puts on a fantastic show and truly exudes love for his audience. A classy guy.

      Normally my taste in vocalists errs on the side of emotionally incontinent African American Christian women with food issues but I do really really like Matt Alber.

  • geoffalnutt

    Matt Alber’s voice shines and sparkles through…unmistakably – and beautifully.

    • Blobby

      no offense, but not unmistakable. first time I heard this, (End of the World) I would have bet it was Rufus Wainwright.

      • Six Pins Delores

        You are entitled to your opinion. 🙂

        I know very similar

    The constant change from distance to close up detracts from a beautiful dance.

    • Max_1

      Most dance is never video taped well… spacial movement recorded upclose tends to lose perspectives AND doesn’t allow the viewer’s eye to capture other elements that inform the viewer of the entire dance. In video, if the videographer wants you to look at the shoes, you don’t get to see the relationship to anything else BUT those shoes and that is what the camera focusses on. sigh…

  • That waS beautiful! Spare, clean…unadorned.
