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.
Here it is, probably our last video for ‘We Need Monsters’, for a song called ‘Love’.
It´s about an indian seamstress who is daydreaming during her work as a kind of cognitive survival strategy.
It took us one year of production to film the different seasons.
What I intended to express with this song is that imagination can save our life. Like it saved the life of this indian girl.
We shot in an abandoned house this summer in a small-town in germany.
We´ve been seven? times up there and at one point I thought it would be a good idea to shoot alone and make some experimental shots. This will be a lesson for me! I underrated the massive heat, passed out and woke up in my own vomit. But don´t worry, the scene is not in the video, I even never saw it for myself because I deleted it instantly.
This video deflects from our former kind of video making, because we focused the first time the band, not the story.
But it definitely has one – which one, is up to your discretion.
