VENTS alumni Milan is back with her newest video for “Meaning”. The song comes off her sophomore EP Time, produced by electronic duo Pax Humana. Watch here
This song is inspired by the music we grew up with – late 80’s and 90’s pop and rock. It’s about the everyday struggle to survive and “make it” in one of the fastest moving cities in the world. Surrounded by all the noise and people, and pulled in all directions by your feelings and thoughts, you realize that as long as you hold on to what your inner voice is telling you, keep your head straight and keep moving forward, you will get to where you want to go. And when you do, you’ll see that every single obstacle and challenge along the way had profound meaning and was precisely what you needed.
NYC-based choreographer Julia Halpin had been envisioning movement with dancers and the magic of harness work, and Milán’s song “Meaning” really spoke to her. She loved the drama in it, the drive – which allowed the concept and story to take shape. The angelic voices, paired with a compelling rhythm lent themselves perfectly to creating dynamic movement, sometimes sharp, sometimes flowing – and then take it from the floor into the air. The amazing dance crew brought it to life in the most authentic way, as only New York City artists could – they navigate this hustle and bustle each and every day.
