'84 Flowers' Song and Video Describe the Nice, France Terrorist Attack

Boston, December 19, 2016:  Standing on Promenade des Anglais in Nice, France on a balmy night in July, I was happy to admire the beautiful fireworks celebrating Bastille Day, the French celebration of national unity. I was lucky to leave just at the right moment and only to see the 20-ton truck taking the innocent lives of my fellow spectators just a few steps away from me… 

Today, I released a song and a music video that are dedicated to the memory of the 84 people that lost their lives in this terrorist attack on July 14, 2016...

The music video is available on YouTube: https://youtu.be/eHhw4Bl9HOs

The song is available on iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/84-flowers-single/id1188130797

I will donate 20% of the iTunes sale proceeds to the Association française des Victimes du Terrorisme, a United Nations recognized resource for victims of terrorism.

faSade

I am a Boston-based electronic musician creating under the name faSade. I craft songs that capture the intensity of emotions and frame them in raw electronic arrangements. While I use the vocabulary of modern electronic music, with complex arrangements and edgy instrumentation and rhythms, at the foundation of my songs lies solid song craft with melodies and lyrics that captivate the listener.

I witnessed the Nice, France terrorist attack last summer and wrote a song and a music video dedicated to its victims. The song, the original music video https://youtu.be/eHhw4Bl9HOs, which includes video footage that I shot after the attack, and my personal story, have been featured in the following publications:

I have previously released a music video that juxtaposes quotes from Donald Trump’s speeches and interviews with dramatic images of historical events that resulted from rhetoric and ideologies similar to those adopted by him: https://youtu.be/EAz2pUj_LzE. This video has been updated with #RESIST https://youtu.be/betUgsMNIXk

On 'Behind the faSade', my debut album, I use emotionally charged vocal delivery to take you on a journey to expose and experience the intensity of desire, pain, joy and heartbreak that rage behind the protective walls that we build around us.
