1f7cf65410 posterWaltz is one part music video, and one part dance film, described as a “Neo-gothic mini film” by Fact Magazine, and a powerful portrait of composer, Katie Gately, also starring acclaimed dancer Bobbi Jene Smith, directed by Samantha Shay. ‘Waltz’ emerges off Gately’s forthcoming album Loom, in dedication to Katie’s mother who passed away from an aggressive form of cancer. The song ‘Waltz’ itself came about after spending an entire day listening to Gately’s mother’s favourite artist, Leonard Cohen’s track “Take this Waltz” on repeat. This short film is a feverish duet, rotating around death, shot in an abandoned convent in Brooklyn NY, where Gately grew up. This film is for anyone who has wanted to spin into a circle until the ceiling became the floor.

Music Video:
A mash-up of various of internet memes into this music video.

Lyrics:
I still remember the day we met in the cyber world
and became online friends
Following every single bit of you
Break ups – Graduation – Vacations and even shopping
I even knew you bumped into ghosts while in the public toilet! What a surprise?

Although I have never met you in real life
But you knew all my secrets
Including my ex-boyfriend’s plastic surgery
Many strange things happened in this tiny world
It’s unbearable to recall yet it’s so special
Such wonderful memories

We used to be so naughty and unpredictable
The old days where we were so crazy and superfluous
What past is past so let’s not talk about it
All the stupidest things we did together

(That’s our precious memory on the internet)

Although it’s wild and full with tragedy
You and I, we still be a part of it
It will be our stupidest and brainless and most romantic achievement.
