UNDERBELLY / 第四階級

by Kun Shan University / 崑山科技大學

The road is always littered with craters and is never smooth and even despite the constant road works. Is it due to poor construction technique or... something else?
“Broken Road” is a story about the conspiracy behind the constant road works in the city and the secrets of the underground sewers that are too terrible to tell. The song even somehow associates Da Vinci, Michelangelo and Donatello with this conspiracy. The entire melody has a strange and eerie atmosphere.
The animation “Underbelly” was inspired by the theme of the song. The underbelly refers to the animal abdomen and their most vulnerable area. It also refers to the dark side of society.
The sewers served as the backdrop for a cast of three species. The relationship between rats, flies and frogs was re-defined to create an underworld that exposes the darker side of society.

道路上總是坑坑疤疤的,整天都在維修卻沒見馬路平整,是技術不佳或是另有秘密存在呢?
《Broken Road》講述城市裡的道路無時無刻都在維修中的陰謀,存在於地下水道裡面一些不可告人的秘密,有趣的是歌曲中運用達文西、米開朗基羅、多納泰羅這三個人物去跟陰謀來產生聯繫。詭譎的氣氛圍繞整首歌曲。
延續歌曲的理念,產生了動畫《UNDERBELLY》,Underbelly是指動物的下腹部,那是他們最為脆弱的地方,有弱點之意,另外也用來形容社會不為人知的陰暗面。
以下水道作為背景,同樣運用三個物種,重新定位老鼠、蒼蠅及青蛙之間的關係,形成一個地下社會,揭露出社會中的黑暗陰謀。
