I would love to make this unique mix: 'Dark Elektro Pop meets Traditional Balinese Dance'..and make a Music Video out of it. Please take the time to discover this project, and find out how you can show your support. Thank you!
It's time to take some steps forward...
Let me share my music with you!
I have recently recorded an EP, and would love to release it.
But what's a release without a music video?
I've been wanting to make this video for a long time, even before I had the idea to record a mini album.
ORIGIN OF THE IDEA
I'm a Belgian musician, with Indonesian roots. When I was on a vacation in Bali a few years ago, I was immediatly impressed by the traditional Balinese dance. The movements can be very fluent and elegant, but at the same time they are very mechanical. And it's this contrast that really appeals to me.
Once I was back in Belgium, I composed 'The Bubble'. But I could not forget about the Balinese dance. And although my music sounds nothing like the traditional music that is used for the dances, the dance certainly had a big influence on how the song was written.
LISTEN TO THE SONG !
Meet Putri, the main character of the video.
The cool thing about 10 year old girls, is that they are girly but still have this playful side.
When she practices her Balinese dance, she is very focussed and elegant. But dare to blink, and she runs off with a quirky grin.
Mayumi is Putri's dance teacher.
She will make the choreography and also star in de video.
The styling will be done by TJ Concepts.
I'm very happy we can work together on this project, because I feel like his style will fit the music / video just perfect. We both like the mix 'Bold but Elegant' - 'Urban & Ethnic'. And he does a great job combining those elements.
SNEAK PEEK OF THE WEEK
Every week I will post a teaser of a song that will be on the EP.
So if you don't want to miss out...be sure to check this project regularly!
THE 3rd TEASER IS TAKEN FROM THE SONG DASHBOARD LIGHTS.
Movie scenes are from Quentin Tarantino's Death Proof.
Of course, I hope to have my own visuals as soon as possible...
I eventually moved to Bali. This means I can not live here without actually making this video. That would be stupid.
To do this, I'm kindly asking for your support.
With this Kiss Kiss Bank Bank project, my goal is to raise €1000.
Where is this money going to?
1.5 days of shooting: € 375
1.5 days of editing: € 250
2 Dancers: € 200
If the goal is exceeded, this will be invested in
- All the costs I didn't take into account...
(yes, I'm thinking of Make Up and styling...but there will be more...)
If there is any more money left, this will go to
- The pressing of the EP.
- Recording extra tracks to make the EP into a full album.
This depends on how things unfold.
