Music Gateway recently had the pleasure of working with DOVE-i on their powerful single – The Revolution. In this case study, we will look at what the collective known as DOVE-i stands for, how their recent release has proved such a success and the future plans for this innovative group.
DOVE-i – The Collective
Emerging from a passion for connecting and exchanging ideas, Dove-i is a musical collective that unites diverse talents to create unique, cinematic artistic projects with strong emotional impact.
With a passion for collaborating with numerous artists to broaden their auditory horizons, the creative forces behind DOVE-i, Thomas Verovski and Bastide Donny, each contribute their distinct styles and innovative concepts.
During this unique time of global unrest, ‘The Revolution’ serves as the unexpected soundtrack to a film no one could have foreseen. As an artistic expression of resilience, the songs tackle profound issues rooted in the reality of this new decade: personal transformation, creative introspection, rekindling love and identity during the Black Lives Matter movement, embracing diversity, and the planet we pass on to future generations.
The DOVE-i collective brings these essential themes to life through music with a strong cinematic flair and collaboration from talents worldwide.
Discussing their musical inspirations and journey, Thomas reveals his background in jazz and classical piano, specializing at the Musician Institute in Los Angeles, where he contributed to the soundtracks of stunning documentaries for France Télévision and Arte, among others.
The sound in their newest release, “The Revolution,” emerged during France’s initial lockdown, influencing the music’s overall tone. A distinct fusion of classical and urban elements results in a rich and captivating composition. Talented artist Rioux V contributes rap verses addressing the impactful events of the global BLM movement, seamlessly integrating with the track’s dramatic instrumentals. An equally powerful music video accompanies the song.
While the song’s lyrics are influenced by the Black Lives Matter movement, DOVE-i envisioned a more universal theme for the video, depicting “The Revolution” as a rebirth in a post-apocalyptic, colourless world of concrete ruins. Scattered survivors in tattered clothes gradually perish.
Amidst this desolation, hope arises through a woman, who, through choreographed sequences, instils hope among the remaining survivors, fostering unity and harmony while igniting the spirit of rebellion and change.
