Kazu’s project also involves visual component. A visual album will be directed by the filmmaker, Eva Michon.
A press release about the visual album states: A distinct sample is used on the track “Name and Age” — the unmistakable cry of Godzilla. “The film takes place on the island of Elba, Italy, where in 1814, Napoleon Bonaparte was banished into exile. Inspired by historical events and symbolism of the island, Michon treats each song as a chapter in a larger narrative, which will be approximately 40 minutes in length.”
