Story of a Bird (Complete)
This programmatic work was painstakingly designed to elicit simple emotions like cuteness, sadness, hope and happiness through the power of music, storytelling and artwork. The story is told both musically and visually, as the characters are represented by specific instruments like piccolo, flute and oboe. The project started in 2016, but with inferior writing skills, Espresso 01 abandoned it until 2021, when he got a call from a bored flutist friend who wanted something to play. Without anything flute worthy on hand, Espresso 01 revived the project in hopes that his writing could finally be worthy of this delicate project of eliciting extreme cuteness and possibly making viewers sob with the power of cuteness, story writing and music.
Music, story writing, and ideas for each scene was done by Espresso 01. The artists further brought the story to life.
The story is about the journey of a young bird who loses his mom and struggles to move on with his loss. Fortunately there are some other caring birds nearby who help him grow on his own and eventually embark on a tragic adventure for closure.
The wonderful contributing artists and their Instagram handles are shown in the video. Please support them!
