Pershanoush - Mesmerizing

Electro-pop music with orchestral influences, Pershanoush takes you into a wide, feminine, sensible and sensual atmosphere. Both strong and fragile, violent and soft, it plays with the paradoxes of emotional complexity.

THE VIDEO

Former director herself, Vanessa Giangrande has since the beginning thought of her musical project in association with the visual aspect. Movie fan and musician since her youngest age, she built Pershanoush around both of her passions.Her first music video Mesmerizing, directed by Régis Raffin, is a very stylized film,with a pin-point editing rhythm, and an emotional crescendo held by shots andvisual effects that stick perfectly to the sounds of the music. She wanted a video who played on the codes of present films and TV shows opening credits (American Gods, Glow etc). Beautiful compositions, multiple exposures, symbols and slow motions are part of the film-making.
