A totally different perspective and artistic portrayal on “Moment of Silence”.
Army Of One, the Kuwait artist band best known for their R&B/Hip hop style music and incorporating art with their work. Having created a niche in the Arab music world and making their music go global.
Pondering about the inspiration behind the song and lyrics, I thought why not get in touch with these really talented men and the team who worked on it. Equally talented, gentle and down to earth letting us get a finer glimpse, Face shares further:
Inspiration behind Moment of silence(MOS)
The song is about love, and all the ups and downs that we go through in life. And Moment of silence, is a moment that we need to take and step back to realize all the good things that is happening to us, around us and look at struggle as a beautiful struggle and appreciate every moment with our loved ones.
Idea/Concept of the video
The song is basically music meets art kind of thing, we wanted to put out something original and mix both cultures Hip Hop/R&B and the Arabic culture, we want listeners and audience treat this song/video like an art piece where each can see it in their view.
About the art work cascading through the rhythmic sounds
We made sure to add Arabic live instruments in the song by using local talents for the music and use local artists for the paintings and art scene in the video. The music was produced by us and Saud Al Saad from Stylus band, and flute guy is Bu Faihan from the music institute … very talented and down to earth people.
We also collaborated with COBA (Colette and Balqis) who appeared in the video, it was all a team effort from A-Z and we all worked on it as a project and made sure it comes out artistic.
And finally to the making of the video
Directed by Malekpur (Minature Malekpour), loved her energy and creativity on the video … she put her heart into it. For the video art scenes we used Ahmad Al Ghanim’s (Co-Founder of Thouq Shop) artwork. We also used Razzag Al Shamali’s artwork and paintings. And special appearance by Abdullah Al Buloushi from Stylus band and Mehdi Sultan from Fight Club Kuwait.
Moment of Silence, beautifully written by Hadi and Face that blends music with culture, art and love.
“Let’s take a moment of silence, a moment of silence, to celebrate our love” Enjoy!!!
