Abstract

This chapter looks at how user generated content on sites such as Vimeo and Youtube has responded to and further facilitated the practice of ‘facelessness’ employed by, electronic music producer, Burial. For a notoriously media-shy producer who is synonymous with the genre of dubstep, these outputs have taken the place of an authorised promotional video while obviously eschewing the iconography/pop music standard of depicting the author. Three separate unofficial videos for Burial tracks are examined that, while differing aesthetically, can similarly be argued as appropriate visual interpretations of Burial’s music.
