An album that takes you on an inspiring journey.
Made with the Kia instrument.

We teamed up with WAVE: a faceless and genderless virtual artist whose work incorporates textures and ambience from nature combined with neuroscience. Using the Kia instrument WAVE has created an album that takes listeners on a semiotic journey through movement. Each track reflects different aspects of movement and inspiration, while all featuring different sound textures recorded from real movements in nature, in order to bring the listener closer to a creative state of flow.

Music Video

“Nothing truly great ever came from standing still.”
- Every Single Move (ft. JVNR & Thom K)

The track “Every Single Move,” perfectly captures Kia’s philosophy that “movement inspires ideas” by reminding us that “nothing truly great ever came from standing still”. Renowned music video director, Courtney Philips, who has worked with artists such as Ann Marie, Rita Ora, Kacey Musgraves, Marshmello, Khalid, and Dermot Kennedy, brought the track’s message to life in this music video.

It tells the story of a young aspiring music producer who spends her days and nights making beats in a recording studio she’s built in her bedroom. As she struggles in her creative process, we delve into her imagined world as she goes on a moving journey in search of inspiration.
