about the Project
The idea to make a joint interactive one-time project with sound producer Ewa Nomad came to me during the first covid lockdown.
Quarantine hopelessness and self-isolation were perceived by us as a way of self-knowledge. Through connection, immersion in memory and experiences of each other, we came to rethink ourselves. Locked in one room with our favourite music, movies, video-arts and so on made us become each other’s psychotherapists, sublime all our feelings and passions in the concept of the song ELIZIUM (which means the abode of the blessed).
Later on together with our friend, the film director Daniel Rubinstein, we’ve decided to immortalize the result in the form of digitizing ourselfs, creating digital images via characters in our music video.
Music video description
Music video explores the archetypes of mythology and compares the other world of demons to the world of parties and nightlife.
The images of the musicians are two servants of the Count of Hell named MurMur who is a guide to the underworld (under whose command exist thirty legions of demons).
According to the demonology MurMur creates music that conveys the meaning of the demon’s name, which in Latin means noise, whisper and trumpet sounds.
Murmur is often depicted as a soldier riding a kite or griffin wearing a ducal crown but in the music video we can only feel his invisible presence. We also used a demon mask made by 3D artist Nikita Replyanskiy to bring a futuristic feeling to the possession scenes.
Two of Count’s servants walk in front of him, blowing trumpets and leading legions, which is a metaphor for two musicians, a singer and a sound producer, living the modern nightlife, with thirty legions of demons dancing to the club music under the command of Murmur who is actually the only demon which has an ability to resurrect and bring corpses back to life.
The climax is turning the singer inside out, intertwining with music, making Karaman lose her physical self and ultimately, the so-called attraction takes her back to the earth but with a sign of MurMur left on the palm of her hand.
