Tilda Swinton the actress and artist, co-directed, with partner Sandro Kopp, a music video. What's the music? Handel! Specifically, an operatic aria sung by countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo. The video? Swinton's dogs playing on a beach! It's good and fun and relaxing and a pure joy to watch.

The project is part of a series of videos made for Anthony Roth Costanzo's newest work, being performed in a month in New York City. Visionaire and countertenor Costanzo's "interactive, multi-faceted performance of Glass Handel" includes nine videos, including Swinton's. Also taking part in the project is English filmmaker Rupert Sanders, James Ivory and Pix Talarico, artist Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari, and famed music video director and filmmaker Mark Romanek.

If you're around the cathedral of Saint John the Divine in Manhattan on November 26 or 27, the performances will be open to the public. Not only that, they will feature costumes by Raf Simons for Calvin Klein, live painting by George Condo, and dancer David Hallberg choreographed by Justin Peck.
