Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch is a French pianist and composer. Three years after debut full-length Like Water Through The Sand, she released a new album. Epoques is out now via FatCat’s pioneering 130701 imprint. She shared a new video for the track “Morphee“. It was directed by Weronika Tofilska which says about it:
“I wanted to make a still life video – which is kind of an oxymoron and an exciting challenge for a director and an editor. In a way this paradox is what interested me – how to capture the passing of time, witness change and destruction using inanimate objects.
“Through this I wanted to try to tell a simple story about women and the way they experience change in their lives. The inspiration behind that were traditional still life paintings which play a lot of these ideas of vanity and mortality, but instead of skulls, quills and dead rabbits, I wanted to use modern equivalents. This reflects in an interesting way the duality existing in Emilie’s music – the two parallel worlds of beautiful minimal piano and eery electronics.”
