Sea To Land represents the transition from the ocean to land on the musical journey the album takes. I wanted to create the sound of the waves and have a slightly eerie feeling to the track, like stepping into some unknown world, which in many ways the ocean and land are very much two different worlds. I’ve always been drawn to images being in black and white but again I felt making the film in this way added to the eeriness of the music.
With the track Mountain, I wanted to make a piece of music that sounded like a rising giant, with sweeping wind like sounds and a gentle piano part that represented a majestic beauty of mountainous peaks and captivating landscape.
With my instrumentals I create, I like to make music and sounds that can let the listener make their own imaginative visions when listening but I decided to make some films to accompany the music from the album and this is my first one. The footage is from a free stock footage site Pixabay. I then combined the footage myself and I edited it to make black and white, with the footage slightly slowed down.
Look out for the face in the mountains in the open and last sequence of the film!
