as you probably know, we started to make a new video for the song „Gods / Demons“.
It’s going to be a very personal video about me, my path, the struggle with myself and my demons.
I’m very curious working with „Image Sixtyfour“ again. This firm and the director Felix Urs Bauer can always understand my ideas, the message I try to convey and bring it on the professional level I really favour.
This time I’m also working together with an amazing ballet dancer Anastasia Dirksen. We visited her own ballet school in Frankfurt a.M. last weekend and made the really great shots for the video. As she danced… It looked so beautiful, guys! I’ve got the goose bumps all the time!
Why ballet and Anastasia? – this is an allegory of my music. The ballet is the art. It takes a lot of time, patiens and needs the discipline. It is a beautiful thing, a spark in this sick world, which is able to make our live better in aesthetical and moral way. At least it’s a hard job. The (high-quality) music is the same, I think.
But when you say to your family „I want to be a musician“ or „I want to be a ballet dancer“, you meet a huge wall of misunderstanding, laugh, disapointment in the eyes, fears and pessimism of the people around you. Thank God, I have a person who believes and supports me – my mum, and thank God I have the friends who are doing the same! Anastasia has the similar story in her life and she knows, how hard it is to struggle for the dream. That’s the reason why.
In the video appears one more character! Again a story from my childhood, I’ll tell you a bit later.
