I’m so so very happy that the first video of our upcoming album ‘Of Those Who Drown to Live’ was exclusively premiered by Wherepostrockdwells, one of the biggest Post-Rock channels on YouTube.
The video was produced by Dream-Noise Productions (Post-Production), 3d fractal artist Jaime_M (Fractal animations), and me (Direction).
Thanks a million!
I promised to tell a story with my songs and videos, so this is how it all starts:
I – Inception:
In the beginning there was a soul, once united with the universe like all of us, then divided from the collective and meld into a human beeing.
With every second Ewian began to forget the feeling of beeing unified – but a tiny rest of this sense would survive.
I’d like to show you a couples of freeze frames from videos we shot last summer with Dream-Noise Productions in Croatia for my 4th album.
We have been at the place where the original Winnetou movie was shot. I am still impressed by this vast, untouched nature.
On one day we got in the near of a forest fire and used the day after to make some super slow motion shots. Here some stills…
Ashes running through my fingers, in the background burned plants:
Croatia, the vast land where Winnetou was shot in front of me:
The day after the forest fire, me sitting between the burned plants on an ashy ground.
Dear subscribers, fans and friends,
I am happy to announce that I am working intensely on the 4th EWIAN album at the moment.
‘Of those who drown to live’ will be special in various ways: it will contain 12 songs (instead of 10 like the other albums) and it is the first time that I am going to create an explicit biographical LP. Furthermore, I will produce a video for EVERY song to illustrate the story behind ‘Of those who drown to live‘ – a story of my life and I guess it will have been a huge project in the end.
I am very excited due to the fact that I will reveal much of my myself with this album. But I think after three music albums I am ready to do that.
The stills are from upcoming videos, Thanks for your love,
I always wanted to make a video with flowers – and a calm, tender version of my song ‘Beautiful Lie” seemed to work pretty well for that. For that reason, I made tracking shots in bed of flowers in my home town. There is a light floating through it, the main element, its meaning not yet to be revealed, but soon.
So here is my new video for ‘Beautiful Lie – The Salvation‘:
Last weekend I made a first experimental test shooting with a GoPro4 in Frankfurt. I fixed it on my car roof and filmed the skylines to use it for a coming psychedelical EWIAN music video. It’s been nice, here some impressions…
On Wednesday my video for my song ‘Love’ was shown at an indie film festival (Zum Goldenen Hirsch) in Heidelberg (Germany). I was invited to be there in order to explain the background of the story. The atmosphere of this evening and choice of the other films was really fabulous. The focus was on unique films with essential messages. I am glad that the actor who represented the seamstress in ‘Love’ (her name is Nilanie) was accompanying me.
I love shooting music videos.
