A fantasy music video, placed in two opposite but connected worlds, the story of a journey between them, to find your true self and where you belong to.

Filmed in Venice, Italy, at Carnival time, and in a cold winter day in the city of Sibiu, Romania, the video relies on the interconnection of scenes to build a unique dreamworld, using some special visual effects.

 

A pure lullaby song, an acoustic composition created on a pentatonic scale, the music video can be looked upon as a meditation, aided by the silence induced by water. All in stillness, loneliness, somewhere in the middle of nature. 

Based on the lyrics of a Romanian poet, Iulia Hasdeu, the story is centered on the symbols of the child, water, a sound of a Japanese bell marking the beginning of meditation

 

Sometimes life is like a mystical journey through the forest, walk below the trees as if each one is one of your dreams. What is given, what is taken, comes or leaves with the light that makes those trees grow.

Filmed in a beautiful autumn setting with a small team, this video is a calling for all who love nature and the gentle ways of man.
