Sense of Sound: Music Video


The final music video showcases a repressed woman in the society. How violence is imposed on her causing her to be socially inactive and alone. Her experience of life is quite different as this world is a cruel place, which is not allowing her to live in peace. This makes her go on a search of an outside world where she lives one with herself.

Sehnsucht represents thoughts and feelings about all facts of life that are unfinished or imperfect, paired with a yearning for ideal alternative experiences. It has been referred to as “life’s longings”; or an individual’s search for happiness while coping with the reality of unattainable wishes.

Since week 1 our main idea behind all our sounds and videos was monotony and the idea of people walking, that’s why for our final video we wanted to show a journey and a sense of monotony. Our idea was to show a girl who is going through an emotional journey and is walking to something better.


Idea #1:

Our music piece made us feel really eerie and mysterious. Thus, for our music video we wanted to show the journey of a mysterious girl walking through the city. Since we have two beats in our music piece and have a duality to it, we are planning to show the fast footsteps as the rest of the world that surrounds this girl and the girl as the slow beats (walking in her own world). In an abstract way it’s like the whole world is dominating her and she’s walking alone in her own slow pace.


Need to build the character sketch of the mysterious girl and what makes her mysterious?

Need to define what is the world in which she is getting dominated? OR She could be in conflict with herself.

The piece of music has duality, need to look over it and think about it.

Think about how the video ends; is there a climax, start and an end? OR is it open ended.

Idea #2:

In the music video we tried to portray a girl going through domestic violence and how at the verge of ending her life she realises the joy of living. She realises that only person who controls her life is her and this realisation makes her a confident and self reliant person.We show her as not being afraid of the crowd and in the end taking control.
