What you are seeing here is a visual interpretation and 1 of 1 collectors NFT of the song ‘Sunshine' by LUNA GRAZIA (me) as well as a commemoration to my first performance and is in itself also a ticket to all future performances. All further utilities are listed below the description and interpretation. 

 

‘Sunshine’ (produced by Dominic Donner) is the first song I ever recorded in a professional studio, which is why it feels more than right to pair it with my first performance. Eerily enough I decided to release it as a single before I knew I was going to Cannes and hence also without this NFT. Regarding the fact that the name of the location of my debut performance perfectly coincides with the lyrics of this song, and prior to knowing about the performance let alone the date of it that both of this would be happening within a week.. Make of it what you will. I find it wonderful, once again very “full circle” of the universe.

 

'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

 

Similar to the audial atmosphere and the lyrics of the song I wanted the visual interpretation to be fun and light hearted. I thought to myself “What does a moon performing Sunshine look like? Solar eclipse!”, so I looked at different photographs of solar eclipses, listened to the song on loop and let my imagination and inspiration run wild. The result is what you are seeing now. A vibrant mix of colors once again hand painted, and then color corrected and once again, frame by frame. Tiring but definitely worth the result. 

 

The underlying message of the song itself is simply put to enjoy the delights of life but to be able to discern what is right for you long term, wrapped in a sweetly written not-so-love-story (read the lyrics at the bottom of the page).

 

Owning this NFT will grant access to unlockable content such as a private link to the full version of the track including the animation with no watermark, tickets to all future live performances (this will not be available for any future NFTsbyLu projects), exclusive previews for future projects, and whitelisting for specific future NFT launches. Keeping in mind that an increase in the recognition of this song or LU NA as an artist 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 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

Sunshine
You could never be all mine
I don't care 'cause it's all right
Gotta share you like Sunshine

When I met you had my heart misbeating, I'm excited
Affinity's a chemical attraction so I fight it
Connection, got me hooked after the first time that I tried it
Pure intentions till I followed you, misguided

Hey
You knocked me off my way
Now I really wanna stay
Let's misbehave

Call you sunshine
You're so pretty but you're there for everyone
You're like sunshine
Not exclusive but you down to have some fun and 
I don't mind what you be doing 'cause I know you're not the one
So be my sunshine on a rainy, stay in day when I need some

Sunshine
You could never be all mine
I don't care 'cause it's all right
Gotta share you like Sunshine

Sunshine
You could never be all mine
I don't care 'cause it's all right
Gotta share you like Sunshine

When I met you had my heart misbeating, I'm excited
Fire, match and friction, the ingredients, ignite it
Flame of pure destruction an idea unforesighted
My ending how I want it, so I'll go ahead and write it

Like Van Gogh in 'Starry Night'
I need you to reflect the light
Dependance what a sorrow plight in games

But if I cut off all my ties
Would anybody be surprised
My continuous rise through night and day

Call you sunshine
You're so pretty but you're there for everyone
You're like sunshine
Not exclusive but you down to have some fun and 
I don't mind what you be doing 'cause I know you're not the one
So be my sunshine on a rainy, stay in day when I need some

Sunshine
You could never be all mine
I don't care 'cause it's all right
Gotta share you like Sunshine

Sunshine
You could never be all mine
I don't care 'cause it's all right
Gotta share you like Sunshine
