I’m Only Sleeping – new music video
The official video for The Beatles’ “I’m Only Sleeping,” directed by Em Cooper.
Beautiful harmonies, experimental recording methods and avant-garde composition combine to create this dreamlike song, evocative of The Beatles’ pioneering approach to the music of Revolver.
Artist and director Em Cooper explored the space between dreaming and wakefulness, working on an animation rostrum on sheets of celluloid. She painted every frame individually in oil-paint, a labourious process which took many months.

Do yourself a favour and read Matt Hurwitz’ seven part article on the recording and remixing of Revolver at Sound & Vision. You may also want to check out Mike Mettler’s “Here, There and Spatially Everywhere” about the immersive Dolby Amos mix. Not including it on a disc in the Revolver DeLuxe boxed sets was not Giles Martin’s decision, and it seems he is hoping for releases of both the “Sgt Pepper” and “White album” Atmos mixes on physical discs at some point.
Asked about how good “Rubber Soul” will sound when remixed, Giles Martin tried to sound like he hadn’t even began to think about the rest of the catalogue, in a September 15 interview with Mettler on Analog Planet.
