MIRRORS / SÓN
Submitted By Grosse8
The music video for "Mirrors" unites the extraordinary sound of composer and multi-instrumentalist Són with the magic, mysticism and magnitude of Iceland’s nature. SÓNs cineastic sound, accompanied by alternating visual structures and breathtaking landscapes, evokes a wealth of overflowing emotions within the viewer. Fantastic Iceland shots and fascinating visual effects create mesmerizing, dream-like sequences. The video was produced by Cologne-based agency GROSSE8 and filmed under the direction of Manfred Borsch. "It's about chaos; about ugliness transforming itself into something positive,“ says Borsch. “Stress and anxiety dissolve through isolation, clearing the view for the beauty of everyday things."
SÓN aka Julian Scherle is a German-raised, Los Angeles-based composer, music producer, multi-instrumentalist and artist. SÓNs music has been featured on high profile and critically acclaimed projects such as “American Horror Story” and “Scream”. He helped shape the score of the hit show “Mr. Robot”, which won an Emmy for Outstanding Music Composition for a Series in 2016. SÒN’s first release, “Rituals” was created over the course of 2016 and 2017 and combines organic electronica with driving rock elements. This work conceptually reflects an exploration of modern day rituals and their influence on mankind. After the completion of Rituals, SÒN passed along the concept to five befriended directors to visually explore this topic and gain different perspectives as a collective.
