The electronic music producer has shared his music video for latest single ‘Mirror’ featuring hand-drawn animations, including an avatar of himself, set in an actual forest.

The music video takes viewers on a symbolic journey in a secluded forest. They are guided by Robinson himself who appears as a floating hand-drawn avatar. The avatar guide the viewers as they traverse deeper into the woods and witness hand-drawn obstacles and animations.

For the video, Robinson uses Live2D face-tracking technology to map his own facial movements onto the hand-drawn avatar, capturing his own live expressions and performance of the song.

The hand-drawn avatar is available as an AR filter on Instagram today, which you can try here following the last filter for the track ‘Something Comforting’ which racked up more than 1 million impressions.

The motivational track, released near the end of August, is the third single for his forthcoming album Nurture. Billboard describes the song as “a dance track with a beating heart and grandiose ambitions.”

The track follows the release of ‘Something Comforting’ and ‘Get Your Wish’, the latter having been praised by The Fader as “a skittish glimmer of a track that climbs its way up to total euphoria.”

Porter Robinson burst onto the scene in 2010 at the age of 18, producing electro-house beats. In 2014, he released his debut album Worlds which gained widespread critical and commercial success and establishing the producer as a mainstay of electronic pop.

The producer found continued success with the release of acclaimed single ‘Shelter’ with Madeon in 2016, followed by a Shelter Live Tour spanning 43 dates and five continents.

The following year, he began releasing music under a new alias, Virtual Self, which lead to his first Grammy nomination for the hit single ‘Ghost Voices’.

Last year, Robinson launched his own music festival, Oakland’s Second Sky, a sold out two-day event.

In May, Robinson hosted his Secret Sky livestream festival. The 14-hour virtual event served as a platform for his favorite artists to perform as well as introducing fans new artists.
