Fanny Dancing


I arrived in St Germain just outside of Paris a few days ago to film Fanny, a dancer whom I starting talking to a couple of months ago about doing a project together. She sent me some videos of her improvising to some of my songs, her movements were beautiful and completely matched the way I felt about music. I tried to keep her in mind and attempted to create a song that she could move to, something that suited her style. I nervously showed her the song for the first time and I have been documenting her experience with the piece, filming everything from her hearing it, to her working out ideas to the piece alone and with her Choreographer Marc. I am approaching this video the same way I approach making music, with no expectation. I am not trying to steer this piece in any particular direction. I am just filming her exploring what I have created while she explores ways to move to it with no real pre conceived notions of what this little film should be, other then, I want to make it beautiful.

your music has beats, no doubt.
but a pulse. like a breath

like how she first moved while on the floor.
