Evanescence vocalist/songwriter Amy Lee has two touring projects to keep an eye on this month. One is her band, which is set to perform its first shows since 2012. The other is the film short she co-scored, Indigo Grey: The Passage, which is making the film festival rounds.
"Amy's involvement is what really catapulted the project, lending it more visibility than we expected," director Sean Robinson tells Billboard. "This film is about taking risks and exploring the lines between fantasy and reality, and by daring to embrace the unknown, we are empowered to experience a catharsis beyond the realm of convention."
Lee composed the score to Indigo Grey: The Passage with cellist/pianist Dave Eggar (who has performed with Evanescence, Josh Groban and Coldplay) and songwriter/producer/percussionist Chuck Palmer (Frank Ocean, Phillip Phillips). They worked in collaboration with Brooklyn progressive dance troupe Hammerstep, which is featured in the seven-minute short. The film depicts a young boy who finds a mask in an abandoned building, with interesting results. Watch it below:
