The new video for the track “The Moon King” by synth-pop artist Marcel Wave is now online, with filming, production and video effects done by myself. Here’s more information about the video, as well as the video for your viewing pleasure:
…The Moon King is inspired by the story of King Ludwig II of Bavaria, as told in Luchino Visconti’s film Ludwig. I have long been a fan of the Italian director, and his leading man Helmut Berger. (In fact, the song’s intro is taken from the movie poster.)
With the lull in other activities due to the coronavirus lockdown, I recently turned my attention to making a video for The Moon King. It seemed like as good a time as any for a voyage of the imagination into magical realms. Perhaps the recent supermoons gracing our skies this year also influenced me.
The song is available on Bandcamp as half of a double A-side. The single also includes my electro cover of Laurent Voulzy’s 80s pop track, Les Nuits sans Kim Wilde. My earlier Exotic Prints EP (digital and CD) is also at marcelwave.bandcamp.com.
