Higher is a eulogy in memory of Hussain ibn Ali, the grandson of Prophet Muhammad. The track itself is a modern approach to a subject matter which is enshrined in hundreds of years of tradition. We directed and edited the video, and wanted to produce something that was different, modern and powerful.
The video represents being in deep thought, alone with empty space in complete darkness – with a single bright light (which represents Hussain’s message). The video starts with the singer sitting, and he rises towards the end upon his realisation and conclusion.
The video climaxes with high contrasts shots with the spotlight in the back creating an amazing silhouette effect with a thin outline of light and powerful lense flares.
