The Palaces and Gardens of Death


A fanmix for The Torture Garden by Octave Mirbeau. I spent way too long on this considering the somewhat obscure source material. Oh well.

There are annotations with lyric highlights. I wanted to use songs that captured both the darkness and the eroticism that define the book's atmosphere, some of them hinting at Clara's role.

"Alas! The Doors of Life only open on to death... only open on to the palaces and gardens of death..."

Cover is my photo + stock, my edit.
