Shaoxing Nomad | Music Video  2018

 

{Shaoxing Nomad}  is dedicated to the song "Shaoxing Nomad" in solo album [ NAG ] released the 2018. The song and the video are both made with sound and footage recorded and shot during the journey I came to the U.S alone at the age of 16 and traveled around the globe.  This video tales a ghostling who was on the pilgrimage to find virtues that would live up to the testing of time and chaos. Those virtues are drawn on poker cards:

The rose in the crystal cube is a representation of the secret sacred part of each individual. The music video has been selected as the finalist for the Independent Talent International Film Festival, a semi-finalist for the Rome Prisma Film Awards, and official selection for the Istanbul International Experimental Film Festival and International Sound and Music Festival.
