A lot of people told me, that “Memoirs of a Geisha” is their favourite track from my debut solo album “9 Stories”, so I decided to do a playthrough video of it. Recently, a friend of mine gave me a beautiful chinese black dress with dragons on it, and when I saw it, I thought that this dress would fit perfectly to the concept of the video of “Memoirs of a Geisha”. So I put it on, put some delicate makeup and started shooting… I hope you will like the result.
Enjoy, subscribe and share! 🙂
P.S. In my “WeeklyckZ” videos, I did several tutorials about licks, taken from this track, so if you’re interested, check them below the video.
Here’s another lick, taken from my debut album’s track, in this particular case – “For Esmé – With Love And Squalor”. In this video I am showing a 7-string minor arpeggio, played in 5/4 time signature on 16th notes, using hybrid picking technique. Keep in mind, that the guitar in the track is tuned whole step down.
This week I decided to show you a little part from my track “Memoirs Of A Geisha” (you can get the whole album by clicking here), which is a double harmonic minor lick in F#m. I plan to make and other lick videos, featuring solos from my album, so subscribe to my channel and feel free to share! 🙂
After months of hearing my friends humming some melodies of my track “The Seducer’s Diary”, I decided, that this should be the first piece from the album to have a music video, so I and the director Boris Katzounov started discussing some ideas about the video. I had the idea, that there should be a storyline – a symbolic and metaphoric one, which had to reproduce what I felt, when reading the Kirkekaard’s book, but re-created nowadays – this task was wonderfully performed by Boris Katzounov, the cameraman Vladimir Bichev and the actors – Victoria Ivanova and Hristo Gebrev.
To avoid the monotonous storytelling, which wouldn’t correspond with the music’s dynamics, I thought it is best to rely on the classical approach to use black & white shots of a band playing, which gave the music video the dynamics needed, also the feel of a soundtrack from a movie, which was the main goal – thanks to the video editor Nikolina Atanasova. Because of the tough schedule of all the people, involved in the video, we had only about 3 hours of shooting, but we did it in time, so I am very grateful to all the crew, who supported this videoclip and made it happen – big thanks to all of you!
Well, my debut album “9 Stories” is officially out and you can find it on the link below.
All I can say is, that this projects was a really hard task to perform, a 9-month musical adventure, where I had to compose, play and record every single instrument, which left me with almost no powers at the end. Luckily, I had the strenght to mix and master this epic (for me) production, so now you can enjoy it and eventually buy it, which would be great support to me, because I have no manager, no label and stuff and I am doing everything on my own.
Hello, friends, fans or random passing strangers! 🙂 After the success of my #audio #sample, that I did last week of my track “A Perfect Day For Bananafish”, I decided to do and a #video #playthrough of another part of the track, because it is long and complicated enough to show it in just a one minute sample, so here you can see one more interesting fragment of the track, which… ok… I will share a little secred to you – it will be the opening track in my #upcoming #debut #solo #album “9 Stories”, so if you follow my topics here and my #facebook #page here, you’re now a little bit more familiar with the album background, tracks, etc. Also, I want to share with you, that in October, my album #9Stories will be available for #online #purchase, so stay in tune by visiting this site or my official facebook page. Ok, enough annoying talk – below is the video, so if you like it, subscribe, share and support me however you wish 🙂
