Klaus Nomi – Simple Man (Official Music Video)


Zieman directed & edited this music video in ’81 for Klaus Nomi, a performance artist with an unusual operatic-style soprano voice, well-loved in Berlin and Downtown NYC, still revered as a cult legend today.

Klaus performed with David Bowie, live and on SNL in ’80. He was one of the first celebrities to die of AIDS.

Here Zieman demonstrates a facility for using video feedback flourishes in a controlled manner, with blooming title effects, and ghostly melting images.
