Gainesville group Hundred Waters has released a music video for their song "Firelight," which originally debuted as part of the band's 2017 release Communicating. Check out the clip above, courtesy of OWSLA's YouTube channel.
The versatile tune brandishes Nicole Miglis' airy vocals and intersperses elegant keyboards and glistening electronics to complement the stirring melody. Directed by artist James R. Eads, the accompanying film is a luminous visualization that serves to emphasize the cosmic beauty of the song.
In a press release, Eads commented on the creative process behind the video:
I was immediately excited about creating something magical and ethereal. The initial idea was to have Nicole, Zach and Trey in the video summoning the light and essentially raising the sun. But after we discussed what the heart of the song was really about, it seemed that the light itself was meant to lead us through the song. The video was then created entirely in virtual reality using Tilt Brush - a program developed by Google where you are sculpting with form and colour and light simultaneously in three dimensional space. I spent about a month sculpting the world that the light lived in. Once the 'set' was completed, I then walked through it filming in VR to generate video content.
