IAMEVE - STARMAN

Hunnypot alum IAMEVE launched her first video, the ethereal “Starman.”  With absolutely stunning CGI work, the music video is the first chapter of a transmedia project titled “The Everything Nothing.  The eclectic video boasts a broad range of influences that are hard to narrow down to just a few adjectives.  (PG-13) Steampunks in Space, maybe?  However you might choose to describe this video, it will most certainly leave you on the edge of your seat for the next chapter.  Check out this press statement about IAMEVE and “Starman”:

“IAMEVE is a spell-binding storyteller who merges electronic music textures and visual dreamscapes. “Starman” was co-produced with David Christophere of the classic electronic music outfit Rabbit In The Moon, and the video was directed by Thor Freudenthal (Percy Jackson, Diary of A Wimpy Kid).  The video’s Starman is played by Keon Alexander, beloved on FX’s Tyrant. The surrealistic love story is told in this mesmerizing music video, with IAMEVE painted in sacred geometry by body artist Michael Rosner.

IAMEVE, the mysterious creator who lives inside “Starman’s” painted other-word, has a unique backstory. With her deep love of fairy tales, visual art, and a diverse musical background, she found herself a Stranger in a Strange Land: Los Angeles – the story city. Shortly after arriving, a massive accident left her with a bionic elbow and unable to play guitar or piano.

“Lying there still, it caused me to open up to untested ways of creating because I needed a new set of tools to keep going. Electronic production had always been a passion and something I had experimented with, but this caused me to move fully in that direction. It freed me up and gave me an entirely new soundscape that feels so much more in tune with the world I am creating.”

With influences including Rodin, Bowie, Terry Gilliam, Dali, Kate Bush, Geiger, Lewis Carroll, Tim Burton, Tolkien, and Dune, “Starman” and upcoming, The Everything Nothing video series and EP will extend the fantasy of inner and outer space across Los Angeles and beyond.”
