Today we're releasing a new music video feat. dance performers Simon Mayer (AT/BE) & Magdalena Chowaniec (AT/PL) for the song "Dans La Forêt (Biscuit Trails)".
For this video, we invited the two dance and performance artists Magdalena Chowaniec (AT/PL, Mermaid & Seafruit) and Simon Mayer (AT/BE) to improvise to the song, and give their own, spontaneous interpretation, independently from one another.
In the video, their performances stand side by side - an experiment showing the interplay of similarities and contrasts in the individual approaches, originating from the same starting point. In a continuous camera shot, viewers follow the two artists dancing through the abandoned localities, confronted with emblematic requisites we selected, as they narrate their distinct, personal story of the song.

Currently, all 11 songs are being mastered by our friend and mastering 'scientist' Klemens Mayrhofer.
