Prologue & Epilogue by The Album Leaf

Darkenin Heart

Acclaimed electronic musician Jimmy LaValle from Los Angeles, aka The Album Leaf, has released a new original work FUTURE FALLING, the first since his highly regarded 2016 album, Between Waves. Additionally, the artist has also unveiled a short film titled Prologue to Epilogue: One Act Leads to Another that showcases the tracks Prologue and Epilogue from the album.

Kate Trumbull-LaValle, a Peabody award-winning filmmaker who happens to be Jimmy LaValle's partner, directed the film. The project was executed together with cinematographer Helki Frantzen and edited by Helena Rodriguez.

The film provides a slow-paced, visual contemplation of numerous subjects, such as sorrow, bonding, recollection, isolation, and love. It is set to the initial and final tracks of The Album Leaf's latest album, and includes people who have experienced both love and loss.

Jimmy LaValle explains: “I didn’t want a conventional music video. Kate and I talked about collaborating on a video that included more than one song, and her idea to create a contemplative piece filmed underwater about grief and love spoke to me. I’ve lost many friends since making this record, and the imagery of suffocation and release invites me to sit with all those complicated feelings. And it also shines a light on how important my family and loved ones are.”

Kate adds: “Water becomes the connective tissue that binds these images together. Water like grief can overwhelm us, and water like love, reminds us to breathe.”
