About the Video & Music
The title comes from the quote: “As long as a word remains unspoken, you are its master; once you utter it, you are its slave.” (Solomon Ibn Gabirol ben Judah, an 11th Century poet and philosopher).
The video footage was taken on the hills overlooking Sai Kung in Hong Kong. I used a digital toy camera, a Digital Harinezumi 2, to take the video and then blurred it in After Effects to create a dreamy look.
The song was played on a Korg M50 synthesizer and recorded using Sonar Home Studio.
