These are stills of the 'fight' NFT, the second picture is the hand painted background. It is the visual representation of the second song from my debut EP '8' called 'fight' by LUNA GRAZIA. 

'With this 1 of 1 NFT project my goal is to combine and diffuse, to create a form of symbiotic relationship between traditional and modern media, with the resulting diffusion not only paying homage to our artistic predecessors and acting as an artistic intermediary, but evolving a personally interpreted sub genre.' - About

'Fight’ is, loosely put, about the relativity of everything due to perception, from which it is deductible that perfection cannot exist. Assuming everything to be relative, it becomes hard to distinguish between ‘right’ or ‘wrong’, a subject which I address lyrically with phrases like ‘no black and white, can’t do the right thing’ and ‘kind devil when I’m fighting, mean angel when I’m crying’ (see the full lyrics at the bottom of the page). 

 

Regarding this NFT I was visually inspired by recurring dreams that used to be my worst nightmares. These nightmares depicted a realm of lines mainly black, white, and any shade of grey in between. This realm did not adhere to physical dimensional norms nor the space-time-continuum that you as a reader are most probably experiecing. There were also circular shapes (which resembled old mechanical wheels such as the ones in a coin press) with rough edges of different sizes, embedded between these lines. The dimensions and relations of these lines were constantly changing with myself in the “midst” of this yet also connected to every fiber of the realm. The constant feeling of helpless and being crushed by the pressure and the pull these ever changing dimensions had on me were what made it feel like a horrific nightmare. The feeling it caused can be closely compared to sleep paralysis, which often followed these dreams. 

 

There came a point when I just accepted the stretch instead of constantly adjusting and fighting it. What followed was that between these lines the primary colors started to show and slowly more and more shades came into the mix. Following this the realm (and thus me) reformed to a symmetrical formation, comparable to the yin yang symbol, finally revealing a realm very close to the one you and I are experiencing right now. The acceptance of this intrinsic feeling I garnered from these experiences of anything being a matter of perspective was something that was very important for me to showcase. 

 

Contrary to the ‘build a man’ music video, which I produced from a directorial and aesthetic standpoint (to a certain extent even detaching myself from the role of the artist in order to depict a purely directorial interpretation) the music video for ‘fight’ more closely depicts the intention of the lyrics. As before mentioned a big part of the visual inspiration for this NFT came from the recurring dreams, which thematically coincide wonderfully with the music video I directed for this track, which is why it is embedded into the NFT and contained in the unlockable content. The distinguishing factor between this 1 of 1 NFT to the previous 2 so far is that only the background is hand painted, the overlays consist of footage from the music video for ‘fight’ and its lumetri scopes. (The background can be seen in the second slide above.)

 

Owning this NFT will grant access to unlockable content such as a private link to the full version of the track including the full length ‘fight’ NFT music video without the watermark, a private link for the full size hand painted background image, tickets to live performances, metaverse performances of the '8' EP, exclusive previews, and whitelisting for future NFT launches. Keeping in mind that an increase in recognition of the EP will automatically increase the value of the NFT and vice versa, I will be using the funds to reinvest into this project and my work. I will also give a percentage to the producer involved in the EP as well as to the charity fund of my choice 'Save the Children'. I will keep 8% royalty from further sales as a further reinvestment and reward for all of the hard work on the project.

Lyrics:

 

No sleep but I'm flying

Astral project me to the night

In deep

But underlying

Don't feel the pressure they're applying

 

Edge deep, danger biting

Kind devil when I'm fighting

Mean angel when I'm crying

No black and white

Can't do the right thing

 

Running in slow motion

Got poison for your potion

Heavenly devilish

Here just to cause commotion

 

Try sleepin' on me

Just gonna wake you up with nightmares

Creepin' up on me gon' get you killed

Go see if I care

Meaner than the devil

Sweetest angel got you frightened

So put up a fight

 

Try sleepin' on me

Just gonna wake you up with nightmares

Creepin' up on me gon' get you killed

Go see if I care

Meaner than the devil

Sweetest angel got you frightened

So put up a fight

 

Try sleepin' on me

Just gonna wake you up with nightmares

Creepin' up on me gon' get you killed

Go see if I care

Meaner than the devil

Sweetest angel got you frightened

So put up a fight

 

Try sleepin' on me

Just gonna wake you up with nightmares

Creepin' up on me gon' get you killed

Go see if I care

Meaner than the devil

Sweetest angel got you frightened

So put up a fight
