The new Arya Zappa single ‘Falling’ is officially released on the 29th of November. The artist herself sheds light on the making of the video:
“Falling” is the second part of the Dark Windows trilogy – a surrealist/avant-garde musical short film based on my dream diaries. The director John is is a fantastic cinematographer, with an unconventional approach and impressive improvisation skills. Dark Windows is very personal, it’s about my personality traits and shadow self, expressed through the different characters in the film. Part two “Falling” depicts the unconscious dance between me and my shadow self, played by the amazing performance artist and dancer Apollo Garcia. I love his performance, makeup and body protheses, all made by himself. He’s a fascinating artist and character.
We shot all three parts in only three days with a tiny team that literary performed a miracle. Falko Sixel who directed the first part “Cut Grass” helped us together with Sam Peach who’s another great cinematographer with the lighting, focus pulling and other technical issues on the set, Nick Münster who edited the film did also a great job as camera operator. Long story short I’m incredibly grateful and happy about the result. – Arya Zappa
