I've been waiting a long time to write this post! Please enjoy my first collaborative work with my twin sister, Natalie - a music video for Darryl Joseph Hoffman's The Trance, which features the lovely and extremely talented, Paige Fraser. It just premiered this past Friday, August 17th in New York City.
When I first agreed to collaborate on this project, it was because of the song. This was all we initially had to work with and Nat and I created a narrative that could incorporate Paige's dancing. To preserve whatever interpretation you may have, I won't go into too much detail - our broader themes concerned ephemeral beauty, the 'muse', love, yearning and boundaries. We were visually inspired by the look of sheet music, down to the lines and notes, as well as what I found was a icy, crystalized quality in the song. Hence the polygons replacing the notes.

Please enjoy The Trance and I would LOVE to know what you think. Below are some screenshots from the video.
