Nick Hakim - Where Will We Go Pt. 1 & 2 now available on Earseed Records.


When conceiving the video for “The Light” from ethereal soul man Nick Hakim’s EP collection Where Will We Go Pt. 1 & 2, Hakim and director Terence Nance embarked on an improvisational collaboration they described as “jamming.” They came up with an alluring collage of images that mirrors the song’s gentle deployment of deep grooves. It’s an appropriate look for a song that sounds like waking up from a good dream. Here’s what Nance had to say about the process:
“The Light” is the result of a sort of “jammin” process between Nick and I during which we tried to be as improvisational as possible when constructing the visual accompaniment for WWWG. This sort of free associative visual exercise looked like he and I trying to allow our subconscious to dictate what to shoot and how to cut it together. The result is a little movie that obeys dream logic and hopefully flows out of impulse instead of strict thematic or conceptual intention.

Hakim shared some thoughts too:
I feel blessed to have been able to work with Terence Nance and everyone else involved on this. He heard the two EPs this past winter and thats when we started to play with visual ideas for WWWG. The whole process felt like an improvised jam session, throwing our ideas back and forth at each other which eventually resulted in this short film.

The resulting video is a pleasure.
