Meanwhile attending to the theatre show «Sfumato» directed by the contemporary choreograph Rachid Ouramdane, Yannis (beatmaker & producer) found the inspiration for the main idea underlying the «Silent Calling» video-clip. The scenography plays in a subtile way around obscurity, with a long-piano as unique set on a stage covered by water. A simple and at the same time strong aesthetic decoration.

accepted spontaneously to participate in this shooting the day after the theatre play thanks to the courtesy of Rachid Ouramdane and his technicians. What an amazing opportunity granted by all these people!
