Yoshiki & Scorpions

Wind of Change

  • Client: Scorpions
  • Year: 2023
  • Location: Hannover
  • Production Director: Olaf Schröter
  • Production Manager: Roland Beckerle
  • Lighting Designer : Manfred Nikitser

This special project was a collaboration between Scorpions and Japanese superstar YOSHIKI. His new arrangement of “Wind of Change” was performed in Los Angeles while the Scorpions recorded the song in their studio in Hannover.

For the accompanying music video, the studio in which the Scorpions’ recording took place, was used as the authentic setting for the band’s part. The challenge was to give this rather small and enclosed room a certain depth and cozy feeling without using lighting as a main characteristic. The result was a great visual contrast to L.A.’s blue and wide skyline, in which the classical part took place.

The fantastic music video can be seen as part of the documentary “YOSHIKI: Under the Sky”.
