This is the official music video for the title track Chasing Memories off my new EP. Here is the story behind everything:
The beat was originally inspired by the ticking of the pedestrian crossing lights in Hong Kong. It's that constant ticking in the background. During my last visit to Hong Kong back in 2012, I went out to Mong Kok one night and got a field recording of the busy neighbourhood. Whenever I was out in the streets I would hear that sound so I thought it'd be cool to do something with it once I got back to Canada. I started working on the beat back in 2013. I thought it'd be very fitting to have some spoken word at the beginning, and got writer/poet Jasmine Gui on board. She not only wrote the poem, but also lent her voice for the recording.
The music video, however, was filmed by my friend Dong. B Kim while he was traveling to Seoul this past winter, and stars the actress Saint. O, a native of the city.
