Directed by Gaia Alari, the accompanying video is made up of 1,700 hand-drawn images, with the end result being around 12 drawings per second.
“The soothing nocturnal atmospheres evoked by Dana’s song made me design a video treatment that aims to represent a dreamscape, or, more precisely, the moment of sleepiness that occurs just before falling asleep,” says Alari about the video “I Kiss The Night”. . “Entering through the door to the liminal space between awake and asleep, the character erases the outside world and enters his brain, experiencing a maze of overlapping visions, distorted self-perception, time and space, of intrusive thoughts that range from the playful – from bizarre and eerie sequences to reassuring memories, in the attempt to fall asleep and finally close the door.

“In many ways, this record feels like my first,” says Dana Gavanski. “When I could use my voice, I had to focus so there was an urgency and a greater emotional trajectory than before…it’s very much related to the vocal presence, which extended to an existential questioning of my relationship to the music. It sometimes felt like a battle, which I often lost.
