Ronley Teper and The Lipliners have released “Pointy Petals (ROSE)”, the second video from Teper’s new Trilogy that was released digitally on September 2nd. The video features mixed media (pencil and water colour drawings, flash animation and 3D graphics) by Davide Di Saro.
Teper has this to say about the song, which was intended as a musical metaphor:
“Nature as Human nature. As I envision it both physically and psychologically we start as a seed, we need just the right conditions/seasons to survive, we bud, we flourish, we wreak beauty, we feel pain, we wrinkle, we decay, and all our petals fade away, but to fall back into the ground and feed the circle of conditions again. Writing Rose metaphorically was an easier way for me to come to grips with this conundrum. I learnt thorns were for prickling but I’d been mislead. They are rather a ladder to climb up to find, sweet swelling Rose. Davide was able to create a visual spectacle that inhabited what I was trying to poetize.
I’m Nicole, a biology teacher by day, but my life revolves around music. I’m that girl that you will always find with the concert t-shirt on and ear buds in. It is rare that you find me without some type of music playing in the background. I connect all of my life experiences to music. It truly has its own language in my heart. There is nothing more exciting than taking in all that a concert has to offer. I love to support local Canadian acts and attend as many shows that I can.
