Music Video Monday: Alex da Ponte


Today's Music Video Monday is going straight to the top! 


Our first video offering of the new year is a gem from Memphis singer/songwriter Alex da Ponte. Director Laura Jean Hocking based this video on Hotel Monterey, a 1972 feature film by Belgian experimental filmmaker Chantel Ackerman. Shot in Downtown's historic Shrine Building, the video depicts da Ponte's songwriting process as a vertical journey from the lobby to the roof.
