    What a magnificent midnight ghost ride along this mesmerizing music …
    Karloff, Murnau, Nosferatu, Lugosi
    All my horror favourites
    And you as a resurrected gothic black is beautiful madonna with Monroe mouth and dreadlocks ..
    The ending was so beautiful
    It must have been a whale of an experience
    Still echoing along all the senses
    Bravo !!!!!

    • Oh so glad you like it! and yes yes yes the nosferatu, Lugosi I love all that, and I just ADORE when it goes to colour and I wake up on the pavement as Burning Bush like a protagonist in a David Lynch film. He has captured exactly what I wanted to capture (even though he directed it and all the visual ideas were his in terms of the black and white etc): the claustrophobia of the haunted house aspect, but also the humour. Although I mean the project earnestly – as this song really did have a great power for me as a twelve year old as a ‘way out’, the video is obviously not meant to be taken entirely seriously. I LOVE the scenes of me just floating around Osaka – there is a real serenity to them I think, in great contrast with the torments in the black room. Everything we did was done spontaneously, but I think it is ultimately about rejection of things and coming to your own senses as YOU want to.

      LIBERATION
