Firstly, remind yourselves what happened in the first rehearsal:
And now here is what we’ve noticed in today’s second rehearsal:T
PÆNDA’s performance starts off with a dim setting, only showing her blue hair and shoulders. In the first part of the song we see several camera shots from different angles. All remains dark and intimate until the first refrain when light coming from thin light poles begins to appear. The screen occasionally goes black and after it we see close ups of PÆNDA or angles from behind. At the second refrain we see an explosion of lights and the performance makes a full use of the triangles on the ceiling. The light from the light poles becomes more pronounced and more diverse and towards the end we also see some yellow theme appear. Overall, she does an excellent job delivering a heartfelt, intimate yet powerful performance.
