Video: Johan Famaey – Time Passenger

It’s sometimes tricky to create a sense of narrative through music alone but that’s precisely what Belgian neoclassical artist Johan Famaey has created with his fantasy-fuelled new track Time Passenger.

By Graeme Smith

Time Passenger is the story of a modern day woman going back in time and being tried as a witch. The composition, driven by a compelling piano melody, gives this sense of a fantastical voyage with dark undertones. It’s the kind of melody in which you can easily find yourself lost and I really got that sense of being out of place and being persecuted.

For good measure, the accompanying video by María Cecilia Alguacil reinforces these themes of otherworldliness and violence. You can check it out below.
