Inspired by the idea that imagining colours and textures can enrich and deepen a musical interpretation, Prélude Romantique is a music video based on the homonymous piano piece by Québec composer André Mathieu. It explores the superposition of analog film textures, piano playing and images of a road trip in the Eastern Townships, a bucolic region of Québec. The project is a North-South collaboration between Canadian pianist Marc Bourdeau, Brazilian filmmaker Caio Amon, and Guatemalan-Canadian cinematographer Yann-Manuel Hernandez.
