In Virtuoso’s opinion, Muse’s ballad ‘Unintended’ is a masterpiece, yet he aims high, believing the instrumental rendition may add an artistic facet and a distinctive sound.
Music Crowns got a sneak preview of Virtuoso’s upcoming music video, and admittedly, it’s a rare gem; a Tarantino mixed in a Film Noir.
Despite original lyrics portraying a man infatuated with a new love Virtuoso’s clip & Spotify Canvas bear witness to the male victim’s story. The woman seems to leave him for an ‘Unintended’ but doesn’t give excuses and opts for a somewhat rattling way out!”
“I planned to record a single for which cover would be my face wrapped with clingfilm, asphyxiated.
This would have, quite plainly, represented the lack of oxygen from Covid-19, or more figuratively, the artists’ struggle to breath without their metaphoric oxygen (i.e., their audience) due to the restrictions on live shows.
I feel, as I am sure many artists like myself do, as though I truly come to life in concerts.”
Virtuoso recalls “It took less than a minute until I was humming the verse from Muse’s ‘Unintended’.
The almost ritualistic pulse of the song, felt like throbbing veins. I then envisioned a young woman walking indifferently around a seated man, wrapping his face up with clingfilm to the steady beat. The unfathomable contrast between the music’s purity and the atrocious scenes we would witness was something I looked forward to creating.
I reckoned my rendition would then present an entirely different perspective on the original song. We indeed had the film on my face for a minute and it was nerve-racking.”.
Virtuoso stands out in the artistic scene without a doubt – his arrangements and emotional playing are beyond the limitations of a violin – they’re a wordless flow of expression.
