Dec811158a poster

Nonsense Mouth is a surreal and lyrical visual album in six chapters by theatrical composer Ellen Warkentine, exploring the heroine’s journey and themes of identity and individuation.

Chapter One of the visual album “Nonsense Mouth.” “Thanatos” is an appeal to the life force, to the divine imagination; a plea to be seen and known fully, and to know intimately the entirety of the human experience in its shadow and light. Thanatos is about the self-destructive impulse, the self-imposed cage of the ego, the old persona, childhood.”

6c4bd9c723 poster

Do not sing to me, my beauty is an artistic music video in which film and classical music are reinforcing each other. With the sounds of ‘Ne poj krasavitsa pri mne’, from the composer Sergei Rachmaninoff, the music video revolves around the genesis of a young woman. She shares in her singing the painful and beautiful memories of the hidden sides of her personality. Inspired by the psychology of Carl Gustav Jung, this music video shows the contrasts between the persona and the shadow. The mask for the outside world and the hidden aspect of the personality are reflected in a melancholic way in a wealth of water, green leaves, red hair and a white skin.
