Serj Tankian approached various friends in the art world to direct a video for every song on Elect The Dead, his debut solo release. This allowed for each director to showcase their personality, creating a unique approach to each song they were given.
Track 6, The Sky Is Over, directed by Oscar-nominated Puerto Rican playwright and screenwriter Jose Rivera (The Motorcycle Diaries), captures Vahe in the studio painting feverishly, inspired by the song. “For me,” says Berberian, “it was a magnificent collaboration between three artists and friends.
