The plan was to create a sort of haunting, hypnotic drone with reverb soaked violins and piano against a synth and subtle ARP. Something that is meant to be played in the subconscious. Like a film score for a psychological thriller or horror that slowly develops an unnerving feeling of unease. I would love to write music for a movie… that would be amazing.
Anyway, the slow motion music video shot on a canal near Slaithwaite, Huddersfield, West Yorkshire. Hopefully it hypnotises you the way it did me when I recorded it 🙂
