I only wanted to make a short video with a Valzer, that I composed when I was 17.
I only wanted to dance again with the vaporous dress that I designed for that Valzer, when I was 17 (that still fits me).
I only wanted to honour our old detuned family piano, that was bought (used) around 1890 and has been touched by generations of hands.
But from that old piano came out an hidden story, that developed by itself while I was filming and even while I was editing the video.
I don't know if it was an ancient memory, a dream, a dream into a dream, desires... ghosts...
