Tocando el Sol
Tocando el Sol is the second single from the album Un Mar de Calma of the Venezuelan songwriter Lasca. Lasca is a respected and renowned artist in the Venezuelan music scene, first as bassist for the popular band Malanga and recently as Producer of important albums like Será of La Vida Boheme, winner of Latin Grammy 2013 for Best Rock Album.
The music video Tocando el Sol is a tilt-shift of Caracas, an energetic and chaotic city, as many of the capitals of the world, but in this case is shown as a playground, like a miniature movement, giving to the city a naive and dreamlike aspect accompanying of soft music.
The realization of this video took over two months and most of the city was covered.
Subsequently a long process of post production began, while editing new and better locations were appearing.
Recently Tocando el Sol was an official selection at the BBC Music Video Festival 2013.
