The Moon, the Bear and the Princes is a music film by Orphan Fairytale and Katja Louisa Stonewood. Orphan Fairytale creates fantastic narratives through a blend of ambient composition, folk music and instrumentation, and fairytale aesthetics, visible in the props and costumes she uses when performing and the visual work accompanying her releases. These are extremely elaborate and layered, yet visibly handmade, revealing they are the creations of one eager to escape the constructions of everyday. Although the music is instrumental, the narratives take the form of sound scapes or scores to one's journey through the magical world Orphan Fairytale creates. She is currently working on two albums to be released in september or october through the labels 'Ultra eczema' and 'Kraak'.

About the series: No View, The Radio
The arts are taking a break. Theaters, museums, concert halls and galleries are closed. To a large extent, the art that is so desperately needed right now is inaccessible. Imagine being quarantined at home without films, without books, without music.
Though we may not access the art, we can still think about it. The enforced rupture of this isolation can also be an opportune moment to reflect on and from, the arts. Every Friday for the upcoming weeks we will showcase original musical works by different artists, selected by Alex Andropoulos.
