Pretty Lights is an artist that always reaches for deeper meaning within his colorful productions — and his latest release “Rainbows & Waterfalls” is a shining example of just that! It also marks Pretty Lights’ first release
since “Only Yesterday” dropped in March 2016.
The song now has a striking theatrical display to match the beauty of the music, as Pretty Lights offers up a unique perspective with the short film concept entitled LETTER 22.
A note on the producer’s official website explains the artistic vision that plays out as “Rainbows & Waterfalls” provides the soundtrack.
“LETTER 22 is a story of the positivity that underscores all movement towards progress and enlightenment, no matter how many obstacles stand in the way,” Pretty Lights states (full note below).
While the music speaks for itself, LETTER 22 takes things a step further — into another dimension that we can’t take our eyes off. Watch as dark meets light and doubt is met with certainty in this exquisite work of art from Pretty Lights!
Pretty Lights – “Rainbows & Waterfalls”
A Note From Derek
LETTER 22 is a story of the positivity that underscores all movement towards progress and enlightenment, no matter how many obstacles stand in the way. It is the story of a pure force of will, hidden somewhere out there, that is dedicated to revealing evolutionary truths to this universe in a systematic way.
It is the story of a visitor from another place, charged with delivering an enigmatic message; a wandering guardian, protecting a civilization that rejects the sun; and a being watching over it all, orchestrating its rhythms.
LETTER 22 is also the story of all of us, who have each, at one time or another, felt ourselves to be in possession of knowledge or insight that appears an innate, universal truth to us, but is callously dismissed by others. In such moments, it is easy to feel as though you truly are from a different planet, governed by a different sense of logic and order than this one, which used to feel so familiar.
However, in such moments we also find ourselves at a crossroads – a point in spacetime where we must choose to either succumb to these tribulations, or overcome them, and let those triumphs fuel the continued search for others who are also willing to open their eyes to another point of view.
