His heavy voice is the only thing that accompanies him. The black and white tones are something we have seen several times in their music videos. However, that doesn’t seem to annoy anyone. This is what you visually expect when you hear the music.

The silence of the world, like a quotation, is suddenly endowed with an oppressive eloquence. Small intrusions are the true sparks here, because their disconcerting presence disrupts the majestic calm of the streets and squares. Are you guilty or a victim? The fate that governs these shots in a tangible way is not the result of decisions taken by metaphysical powers, but stems uniquely from the imagination of the two creators of these photos
