Etherwood

'Begin By Letting Go'

What?

This is my other chosen song and artist that I am also considering creating a music video for. Unlike my other chosen artist, Etherwood comes from the 'Dance/Drum & Bass' genre. This song is completely different to my other chosen song however I have equally good ideas for how I am going to conduct a music video for each.

Why?

I have chosen this song because it is one of my most favourite songs and I personally enjoy listening to it. This song reminds me of summer and having a chilled time in the back garden with a few friends and drink. My dad was the one who introduced me to Etherwood as he is a big fan of Hospital Records and knows a lot about the label so if I was ever stuck I would always have someone there to help me.

Taken from the Hospital Records website- 'In 2006 Hospital Records announced the arrival of twisted sister Med School. There aim is to take you deep into the realms of electronic music as we champion emerging talent and push a unique palette of sounds.'

Lyrics

[Verse]
These walls are disappearing
And I don't seem to care
It gets larger and larger
And there's colour everywhere
The bodies are lighter than ever
And floating off the ground
There's noises from the windows
But I can't hear a sound

[Hook]
And all of my limitations
Begin to fade away
In this place I have freedom
It's here I wish to stay
Thoughts become distant feelings
I'm going with the flow
I'll just sit still now
And begin by letting go
Begin by letting go
Begin by letting go

[Verse]

[Hook]

[Bridge x2]
These walls are disappearing
And I don't seem to care
Noises from the windows
But I can't hear a sound, I can't hear a sound, I can't hear a

[Hook]

[Verse]

[Outro]
But I can't hear a sound
But I can't hear a sound
But I can't hear a sound
But I can't hear a sound
But I can't hear a sound
But I can't hear a sound
Begin by letting go

Ideas

I have a few ideas for when it comes to creating a music video for this song. Many people when it comes to filming will create a narrative through out the video, filming someone as they show an event or tell a story. With this song however, I have two ideas with how I would like to produce a music video.

  1. To not focus on one object but more of a wider area. Instead of filming someone walk around and act out a story, capture a real life situation. Because this is a Dance song I could try and get access into a club and film the busy habitat as it progresses through the night. Capture shots of the crowd and the night life movement. This is a risk because of my age however I can email a good amount of club managers asking for this permission to film.
  2. Like the original video Etherwood already has, I can film in a P.O.V style. This will create a sense of realism for the audience and become more effective. This would be an interesting approach to filming a music video and I think it would be unique compared to others.
