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.
