Samuel Ransbeeck - Um só (2008)
Um só was initially an electronic composition for the course of electronic music at esmae, porto, portugal. when i met camille entratice, a french-brazilian artist, who was doing her erasmus in porto, i asked her to collaborate with me to make a videoclip for my music. camille took a dance clip of youtube and put some heavy editing on it, changing the succession of the movements in the original video and adding various light effects on it. the result is an atmospheric video that completes the muisc very good. a friend described the music as "music of encounters", where something happens and quickly disappears. the video tries to picture this, showing one dancer, then two dancers but always getting away from eachother as if it were a short encounter. the name in portugese "um só" means "one alone" and that is what the music and the video are about; somebody who wanders around and encounters many things, but in the end, stays alone.
