Multi-talented artist Lindsey Stirling looks to set the stage for curiosity with a touch of comedy on her music video for “Masquerade.“
Since first emerging on the scene, Lindsey Stirling has demonstrated her prowess with releases that have included albums like Shatter Me and Brave Enough, while also proving to be one of the most sensational live acts as well with her violin in tow. In 2019 she continued to wow her growing fanbase with the release of her latest album, Artemis, which further showcased her futuristic take on music and featured a number of standout tunes.
Earlier this year, Lindsey Stirling unveiled the details for the forthcoming tour centered around the album, which sees her joined by Kiesza and will stop in cities across North America from July 3 to September 10. Now, with the start of this run of shows kicking off soon, she’s graced her fans with the release of the music video for “Masquerade” – one of the tracks on Artemis that truly captivated listeners.
The music video for “Masquerade” is rich and exciting as it takes viewers on a trip to the past.
Set at the Orpheum Theater in Downtown Los Angeles, the music video instantly transports viewers back in time to the past when movies were silent and only in black and white. The first character we are greeted with is Lindsey Stirling on stage, making a call on an early version of the telephone. As the scene cuts away, we are introduced to four characters that appeared to be awakened from their slumber by being summoned to the stage. That’s when their performance begins alongside Lindsey Stirling as color floods the screen and the sounds of the violin and electronic elements lead the way.
As the viewer experiences the performance, each act adds more anticipation to the script, being visually represented into separate acts by running into the halls as the viewer transitions into the second. Expressing themselves with elaborate masks and colorful dresses and fans, each performer inspires viewers not just by the music but their motion as well. Then, the video reaches the last scene and the performers are seen asleep in the auditorium chairs and labeled “The End” in black in white – a fitting end for this stunning video.
