"Canas y Azucar"

Runtime: 1 min. 56 sec.

A one+ minute of energy and joy. A diptych video, which is an "evolving painting", it is the result of hybrid compositions: painting and staging prior to capture, then worked on the computer. I hope my Artworks are perceived as a happy contrast to the stressful Pandemic atmosphere and bring joy and happiness.

ARTHUR DELLA MORTE 

"Battle of the Forgotten Kingdom"

Album

My inspiration came from isolation and to some degree escapism from all that is plaguing our society right now; the virus, the fake news, our leadership, the negativity on social media and the lack of individualism! It used to be our pride now the government wants copies of each other so that they can feel safe. I could have released a pop piece, a ballad, a break up song but I didn't. I escaped. This album became my world where I felt safe, at least while I was making it. What I am hoping to achieve with this album is provide people with the same escapism that allows me to cope with this crazy world. The music is meant to take you away into a far away kingdom where you can escape what's going on right now. At least for the 20 something minutes that it lasts!

A new dawn for a broken kingdom
Arise from the ashes
Arrival of the evil lord
At the hands of our enemies
Death of the King and the Queen
Our Kingdom has fallen
The path towards our new kingdom
Enter the King and the Queen
For the pride of our castle
Battle of the forgotten kingdom
