Trailer: MOON SHADOWS music video
An image of a child looking towards the evening moon visited my thoughts one day or maybe it was a dream, from there an imaginary dialogue or dance emerged between the moon and the child. But who is guiding who in this planetary dance, is it the moon or the child?

I often wondered how a distant moon could influence the ocean’s rhythms and tides, in a kind of inter-planetary dance beyond distant horizons. From these uncertain thoughts, lyrics and dance followed thanks to the artistic contributions of those near and far.

With gratitude to our journey and the shadows that follow us along.
