My Father

Niina Lehtonen Braun

Olento Orchestral´s powerful and surreal music video Isäni (“My Father”) is made by Berlin based visual artist Niina Lehtonen Braun. The animated paintings and collages of the video open a distinctive visual world of birds, balloons, potatoes and steaming tea cups – a lot of flowers. The rhythmically edited collage and the unusual music of Olento Orchestral connect in a deep level.
