‘REVOAR, A BREEZE FROM THE 'FLYING ORCHESTRA'
A message of rebirth and hope for 2021.
Single & Music Video: 08/01
'Revoar' derives from the French, revoir: review, look with new eyes.
'Revoar' is a song by Orquestra Voadora about rebirth and renewal of hopes symbolized by the flocking of birds.
Composed by saxophonist André Ramos, originally for the children's show “The Magnificent Flight of the Man Bird”, staged by Orquestra Voadora in 2016, the music took on a life of its own and was incorporated into the band's concert repertoire. The sound was worked in greater depth, emphasizing its references in the melodic and rhythmic roots of Brazilian music. Launch was scheduled for early 2020, when plans were interrupted by Covid-19.
During this period of confinement in the pandemic, director Diogo Cunha conceived and produced the video clip. The feelings that had inspired the composition of 'Revoar' were then re-signified, in light of all the learning that the moment awoke. The clip tells in a poetic way how imagination and art, at this moment become a matter of survival, and the means by which we are in contact with each other despite the distance. Music is like wings that give us an entirely new flight.
The launch of 'Revoar' by LONA Musik, Berlin label, on January 8th arrives along with the turn of such a complicated year, and brings a positive message of hope for a new start in 2021.
'Revoar' | Behind The Scenes
'Revoar' - Music Video
“When we started talking about a video for 'Revoar' the world was different, the ideas were different, then the sky in 2020 fell. Even so, we understood that the process would have the time and textures of that moment of isolation and doubt. The music, with its melody that suggested a walk with some curves, took on the meaning of a larger, almost transcendent path, and gradually became a handmade and surrealist piece.
A more homemade video, without direct human presence, built from what can be seen from a fixed and apparently limited place: the framing of a window. The contours that limit were transformed, however, by the desire to draw the freedom of the possible. The window thus became both an opening and a surface for the dream, a field available to the unpredictable. That's how at the end of the process I see this clip: an invitation to the interpretations of those who experience it, to their free drawings, to their inventions. ”
