Skittering beats across a desert plane. Mara dancing by fire, the cloudless sky illuminated by the laser trails of countless celestial beings. The smoke from the flames helping give the laser light form and shape.
As the darkness begins to spread at the far corner of the sky, a lone figure moves in the desert valley below. It’s not quite clear how she came to possess the fuel, but this distant figure is almost certainly building a fire, or a pyre, or some other low wooden structure that seems ripe for burning.
As the desert turns cold, the sun picks out the black edges of the surrounding mountains.
Now it is night and the fire rages. We are closer. Closer to the warmth of the fire. We can see that our fire builder is Mara. She dances behind the flames and as she does so, we hear music.
Skittering beats cross the desert plane. From above we see shapes against the stars.
Right on the beat, the cloudless sky becomes illuminated by the laser trails of countless celestial beings. The smoke from the flames helping give the laser light form and shape. Their metallic wings and angular bodies blot out the stars.
And Mara dances. And Mara sings. And the desert becomes a dance floor for the black birds in the sky.
