A singer-songwriter from West London has chosen the deepest, darkest depths of the glorious Undercliff for her latest music video.
Alessi’s Ark (aka Alessi Laurent-Marke) is no stranger to the Isle of Wight, performing at Bestival in as far back as 2009.
A sun-dappled journey
The music video for DLD (Door Light Dream) was directed by Aude Chagnon-Caumet and Julien Bourgeois with assistance from Mhairi and Jack from Ventnor Exchange.
It takes you on a delightful sun-dappled journey through the Undercliff and those of you who walk around the southern part of the Island will recognise the scenes, including the road down to St Catherine’s Lighthouse and the farmhouse where inventor of the radio, Guglielmo Marconi, lived.
The video ends with Alessi sitting on the revetment down by Ventnor skatepark
Sun, sea and rolling countryside
Alessi told the Dork music Website,
“Love and travel are the themes of the album, and the short film to illustrate ‘DLD’ captures this mood.
“Sun, sea and rolling countryside combine beautifully to take the viewer on a voyage of discovery to somewhere unknown but strangely familiar.”
