Although the following music video is about a year old, we wanted to present it in this format because it’s an exceptional work, even sublime in its innovative simplicity. Created by experimental visual creators Romain Assenat and Ana Silva for Nils Frahm’s composition, Says, which itself is a masterpiece of contemporary musical exploration, the video applies a method of video feedback to create a unique visual experience of beats and musical punctuation. In our age of digital manipulation of everything, it’s remarkable to learn that this was created in a largely analog process, in a single take, which Romain and Ana share with PLANET in the following interview.

For starters, can you tell us a bit about yourselves, where you live, what you do, and how you came to direct the Nils Frahm video for Says?


We are a French-Portuguese couple living in Brussels for several years, and we love experimental music and arts. I work in the social field with young people and Romain has made me discover the experimental music world and, more specifically, Nils’ work in 2010.
