EDITORS’ NOTES

Given his penchant for crazy costumes and stage lighting as the frontman for Genesis, Peter Gabriel was a natural fit for the mind-bending potential of music videos in the ‘80s. Early on, he exploited minimalist effects for maximal impact, like the solarized imagery that intensifies the claustrophobic air of “Games Without Frontiers.” A decade later, the creepy stop-motion animation of “Digging in the Dirt” confirmed his status as a master of the medium.
