Video Voyageur: 3Qs with Star Goes Nova

In her latest creation, Star Goes Nova takes us to a futuristic dance rave on a space station. City of Angels is the fantastic pleasure dome foretold by legend. The actual Falcon 9 launch rockets us to a polyrhythmic society, where intricate instrumental layers spotlight human diversity while chanting primordial simplicities. Well known on the Southern California scene as a bassist, Christine Law reinvented herself as a sound engineer and multi-instrumentalist. Working with Grammy producer John Baffa, Christine burst on the EDM scene as Star Goes Nova.  Christine combines real instruments with electronica and dubstep drums to create epics that are beautiful and powerful. She melds her background of hardcore bands and orchestra into diverse sonic landscapes and often incorporates the sounds of space. Star Goes Nova is a multi-instrumentalist empath making experimental, electronic music kaleidoscopes for the cosmically curious.  We caught up with Star Goes Nova for an insightful Video Voyageur below!

Tell us the story of this song, why did you choose to visualize this song specifically? 

City of Angels is a space station; a fantastic pleasure dome foretold by legend. The actual Falcon 9 launch rockets us to a polyrhythmic society, where intricate instrumental layers spotlight human diversity while chanting primordial simplicities at a futuristic dance rave. Memories of our planet take on female form dreaming in immersive rivers of sound. Away from Earth, we become our primal selves, sharing a singular human essence yet radiating complex expressions of spiritual selves.  

What was the inspiration behind this video(visuals, storyline, etc.)? 

Hope, love and the human spirit inspired my belief that, if we could all step off our planet and celebrate the essences of each other – even for just a little while – society could connect as angels to each other. 

What was the process of making this video?

I had witnessed a Falcon 9 launch, hearing its roaring engines achieve
the ultimate in human creation and started imagining a very special spaceship! The pleasure dome itself contains elements of immersion represented by a futuristic river flowing through the space station and ending at a viewport. I combined stock footage with artwork, creating cinemagraphs and graphic loops. I especially enjoy compositing elements, using layered effects, to express the viewpoint of the music.
