Slowly Rising - Directed By Hideki Inaba

“Slowly Rising” is a song produced by Beatsofreen, a relatively new artist from the Netherlands. The song itself uses an impressive amount of string instruments and blurred atmospherics to immerse the listener. However it is only when paired with the animated video, created by Tokyo based artist Hideki Inaba, does it feel like a crossover between Alice in Wonderland and Fantasia.

Beatsofreen describes the song as…

“Slowly Rising suggested to me the image of the sun.

A seed was born beneath the sun, the source of all existence.
The seed absorbed the light. It created more seeds like itself, gradually increasing in number.

Time passed, but still their numbers slowly continued to rise,
and before long they were quietly swallowed up by their own shadows.

After everything that had lived had perished, nothing but an empty world remained.
There, once again, an environment where the next living things could grow silently began to spread.”
