This animated music video is inspired by a heartfelt story of a relationship between two soldiers during the Second World War, called "Letter to a G.I.", first published in 1953 and republished in September 1961 by "ONE Magazine" in the USA.
In the letter, one of the soldiers - Brian Keith - describes warmly the best moments that him and Dave (his partner) shared during the North African Campaign of 1943, when they first met. Unfortunately the story ends with a sad farewell to Dave, as he did not make it back home.

A stretched sheet of spandex acts as a membrane interface sensitive to depth that people can push into and create fire-like visuals and expressively play music.
