Check out my first music video! Last month it premiered on The Deli Portland and they had some nice things to say:
There's nothing wrong with a little bit of smooth and silky electro-R&B sounds, and that's exactly what Telecommuter is dishing out with his debut single and video for "Can't Get Back to Sleep."
Telecommuter is the solo project of composer and producer Alexander Margitich, who also holds a Berklee College of Music background in contemporary composition and production, as well as quite a bit of choral singing and improvisational jazz guitar training. Margitich's background has translated itself seamlessly into the electronic arrangements he's been working with recently. "Can't Get Back to Sleep" is laid over a slow tempo, moody electro beat, as Margitich gives a mellow and slightly sultry delivery of his vocals. The track was inspired by a fit of jet lag and insomnia that struck him on a family trip, the experience contributing to much of the song's moodiness.
For the video, Margitich collaborated with his wife, fashion designer and photographer Lina Michal. Together they visually matched the mercurial air of the song with the abstract and ambient carnival shots.
