"The short film is a journey structured around the shadowy figure of a vinyl record playing, where the viewer observes its spellbinding and hypnotic movement. As the music starts, the film presents macro shots and fragments of repetitive grooves, shapes and matter. The vinyl record appears to progressively fuse into new and less identifiable substances, culminating into an enigmatic circular form. The story quickly reveals a strong visual atmosphere and emotive landscapes, exploring the notion of time and cyclic movement. The entire video was realised by shooting a set consisting of a number of domestic devices, all shot in live action, using mainly macro lenses."

"Collected is a contemporary classical piece composed using sounds, themes and melodies from each of the other tracks on the album 'Collected'. I wanted the elements presented in a contrasting style to take them away from their original intentions. This idea is like that of a remix, though it sounds like the opposite... the other tracks sound more like remixes of the composition. I created the piece very much with film in mind."
