Official music video for Cliff Hines’ song ‘Dresden’. Animated by Tahnee Gehm.
The peaceable and artistic city of Dresden, Germany is bombed relentlessly with little reason given other than to stop the train lines for military purposes. The abilities of hands are observed — to be creative and caring, or simply press a button that causes massive destruction. The regret of abolishing a beautiful city is realized, and history is erased.

Hey everyone! While it’s been quiet on this blog, I’ve been busy working on a music video for Cliff Hines’ song ‘Dresden’, which will be released in the coming weeks! Here are a few sneak previews of what to look forward to in this sad story– all told in slow-motion.
This was inspired by a beggar I saw in Paris by the Notre Dame. Rather than begging, he was at least providing the public with music piped from his music box. There were a lot of ‘look out for pickpocket’ signs around the large attractions, so I figured he may be a distraction for some kid to go and do the dirty work.

This called out to me in a musical fashion at an art store of all places. I didn’t want to be a creeper and appear to be hovering over the little girl that was playing it when I finally located it within the store. Feigning interest in the sketchbooks, silence hung in the air and I attacked the toy piano. And fell in love. And brought it home. It’s my new toy, which apparently carries its tunes clear through multiple closed doors and walls, which isn’t so good for my suitemates… Hey, I’ve been wanting one for nearly a decade and it was on sale! Expect to hear it in soundtracks this year 😀
