MONAD’s “September” is accompanied by a beautiful set of visuals
Following the release of his sophomore EP Dissolution, Tel-Aviv based artist and producer Eshchar Nachmany (AKA MONAD) drops the visuals for “September” – filling the summery soundscape with a shuddering sense of self-doubt.
Along the celestial rhythms and pulsing synth patterns, dancers struggle against the clutches of uncertainty – finding both support and opposition within themselves and each other’s grip. It’s a beautiful balancing act.
“The music video for ‘September’ was born out of necessity”, Esh details. “We had been supposed to film a music video for the song in Tel-Aviv when the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown came into full swing, completely stopping the production in its tracks. We had been thinking how to proceed with the video when I came across one of Simon, Maya and Audrey’s works and it caught my attention immediately.”
“There is a great deal of heart and sensitivity in the dancers’ movement and motion, and it struck a chord with me in a way I did not expect. I feel ‘September’ is in parts about alienation – from one’s sense of identity or feelings, but also about expectations – internal and external alike. I think it’s something that’s present also in the choreography and interpretation of the music presented in the video.”
“September” is a thoughtful, introspective offering from the talented artist.
