Raphaela Gilla is a songstress for the ages. Her new record “Ancient Angel” takes the listener on a journey to reunite with their own guardian angel. The journey begins with the track Remember Your Love, as a reminder for the unconditional eternal love, and ends with The Reunion, the reunion with your own guardian angel. The Reunion consists of three parts – Part One: The Ancient Call, Part Two: Coming Home, Part Three: I am Here With You. With her new video in tow for “The Love of All” she takes the viewer on a musical journey. We sat down with Raphaela as she dives into her process and video, below!
1. Tell us the story of this song, why did you choose to visualize this song specifically in this way?
The song is about the simplicity of things and the acceptance of things as they are. It’s about the element air- “when the spirit is spirit let her go”, fier- “when the sun is sun let her glow”, earth- “when the mountains are mountains let them dream” and the art of music- “when the songs are songs let them sing”. All these elements are coming through, being presented and supported in the video in order to achieve an angelic transformation in the end of the video for The Love of All.
2. What was the inspiration behind this video (visuals, storyline, etc.)?
The inspiration was my guardian angel, the purity and the simplicity of things or the world around us through his eyes and the unconditional love that they bring when we see them, recognise and accept them as they truly are.
3. What was the process of making this video?
The process was a wonderful collaboration with a visual artist. She and I talked about the images that going to present the elements and the transformation in the video. The artist understood the perpus and the essence of this video and made every visual image inspired by my vision and fotos. We communicated during every step of the making of. I was open to her creative ideas as well. This artistic collaboration was a fantastic and harmonies experience of 2 female artists from different art genres that support, understand each other and create a wonderful, inspirational multimedia art together.
