Laputa was the first Miyazaki film I saw, and to me, it is still the best, and the E.S. Posthumus CD "Unearthed" is still a CD I cannot get enough of. Not that those are good reasons to undertake a music video, but this one is more of a lark than an artistic statement.
However, there is a slight ironic subtext that I was not really aware of until I finished the video. All the tracks of the E.S. Posthumus album are named after dead cities. This provides an interesting underscore to the story of Laputa, which is about the quest to find another lost city, albeit an airborne one.
If nothing else, I hope this video inspires people to see "Laputa". I know a lot more people than usual who have seen this video have asked me what the anime was.
