It is very possible that the music video ‘Mediocre Frequency‘ (ft. Esha, Farrah, Fraan & Mason) proposes a fairly familiar scenario to many spectators. But this is precisely the special aura of this musical-narrative experiment. By adopting a backdrop inspired by the medieval imaginary, directors Rakib Erick and Christian Kennedy aim to translate the message of the lyrics that talk about the inherent anxiety of total solitude in a dynamic story about loss and overcoming internal barriers. Indeed, the epic core that accompanies the music doesn’t have a purely descriptive role, being a metaphoric layer of the sound dimension, but the creators of this short film are aware of the special quality of music to transgress all types of language, in order to crystalise in different forms, sublimating the acoustic harmonies in a linear, but rather catchy, micro-narration. Perhaps the epic evolution of the music video is more optimistic than the acoustic matter of this melancholic song with soul influences, but the strategy by which the directors develop two almost disparate worlds that converge only in particular subtle segments is as effective here as in other videos specific to the new stylistic formula of the recent visual-musical experiments.
A knight defends a young woman at the cost of his life, trying to save her from a crowd of barbarians who chase them in a forest. But the two protagonists do not manage to escape the unpredictable attack of the enemies. Despite the desperate situation, the young woman discovers inside her a mysterious force that will help her face any obstacle. In a parallel universe, a series of visual segments capture two vocalists singing the destiny of this special protagonist.
