Phases - Malaspina
Art music video by Ebba Jahn | HD 5 min. 2023
We have created an art music video based on a proposed track by a film festival titled "Malaspina" by Raffaele Casarano, featuring Dhafer Youssef - oud, lyrics and voice. The visuals consist mainly of drawings by Dwayne Jahn, his 3rd art video. Tunesian jazz musician Dhafer Youssef's voice with Dwayne's recent Phases-Drawings are merging: "As a harmonious unison of heartfelt music, colorful drawings and serene film, PHASES touches upon themes of what we go through in life around the world when we introspect and let go. This video can be considered an abstracted representation of personal balance and the ongoing search for improvement". - Dwayne Jahn.
