Official Music Video for Katrina Essence for "Butterfly Effect".
Mixed & Mastered by Nick Nelson.
Directed by Stefaniya Vey.
The human experience involves a perpetual transitioning between darkness and light, subtle but powerful, like the flapping of wings. The visuals artfully represent how we move through this continuum, at times writhing and twisting in painful transformation, preparing to break free from our cocoons. What binds us also has the ability to set us free. So that when we emerge as an ethereal version of ourselves, we can better appreciate our joy BECAUSE of our pain, and better express gratitude for the light BECAUSE of the dark. Our lives hold both the memories of heartbreak and the dreams of perfection, which together form the sacred identity. Embracing the contrast is the secret to a full and unapologetic life, for which “Butterfly Effect” is the ideal soundscape. This music video is symbolic of how the artist’s raw vulnerability is used to power a deeply personal transformation, which is then channeled into her craft. While a woman is individually powerful, she is also empowered by other women who share her vision and lift her up. The “Butterfly Effect“ production would not have been possible without the talent and support of Stefaniya Vey who dares to be a rare flower, as one of the few female directors in the industry.
