FACE 2 FACE
© 2021 Pique Project

Music Video with Yesh, 3:47 minutes, released on Nov 1st 2020, Pique TV 

Face 2 Face is about facing your own demons, the anxious feeling right before something's about to change, and knowing the reward can be self-empowering. It's also about collective energy, like a domino effect, one change decides the rest and we all affect each other.

© 2020 Pique Project

Music Video with Ahya Simone, 4:34 minutes, released on Oct 12th 2020, Pique TV 

Shot in Ahya's hometown Detroit, “Frostbite” is a conversation about the feeling of being isolated while longing for connection and belonging. This song is a reminder that we need each other - risk and all. And if we look around, there is love to be cherished and watered. I hope that Frostbite will keep you warm.

LEMON

Music video / visual short, 4:07 minutes, released on July 10th 2020

“What’s the lemon for?” Artist Jayne Lies created this visual to depict quarantine 2020 in NYC. A bitter, sweet, and sour look at life above and beyond the sociopolitical hyper visions of our time — "Lemon" is a mnemonic picture of the next life being birthed from lockdown's loop. Interpersonal and metapersonal awakening amidst the Hong Kong freedom movement, Black/Trans Lives Matter in the US and all freedom movements around the world. Featuring Song "LEMON" made for the video, by HiMO, Mountain & Eli Dru.
