Antony and The Johnsons - The Spirit Was Gone

Antony Hegarty's profound admiration for Butoh dancer Kazuo Ohno is by no means a secret. Ohno was featured on the cover of his third studio album and now the video for "The Spirt Was Gone" pays tribute to this theatrical icon. Fitting so well with the Ohno's expression and character, it would be no surprise that the music is directly influenced by this subtle, fragile dancer. A gracefully blossoming song that crumbles before full bloom.
