Elaquent teams up with Seb Zillner on “Moment Of Weakness”.
An Elaquent reply to one of Hiphop’s greatest instrumentals, 2Quik’s Groove III”. This time flutist Seb Zillner matches Charles Greene’s majestic performance and leads the Elaquent production to a zen-like zenith. Watch Animator/Director Eric Power’s vision. “When I first heard Elaquent’s “Moment of Weakness” I was struck by how cinematic it sounds. I began to see landscapes with rolling hills, mountains, forests, and streams. I decided very early on that I wanted to pull the camera back and challenge myself with letting the landscapes tell the story and dictate the mood. It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of Samurai cinema (my first animated feature is a Samurai film, afterall). The flute featured in the track was so striking to me that I wanted to make it part of the narrative, so I decided to tell a loose story of a traveling musician who plays for the gods. It was important to me to not lock down any particular narrative as the music felt bigger than any short story could contain. So, until the day I can convince Elaquent to score a full feature, this is gonna have to do!” – Eric Power (Director/Animator)
