Premiering 10-24-2013. DEROSNEC is the multimedia audiovisual project of Nina Helene Hirten.
Visually, DEROSNEC is a filmmaker and illustrator. Her passion for storytelling has inspired shorts, movies, and graphic novels as well as standalone pieces of drawn or painted images. She has created everything from animated shorts, to documentary vignettes, to music videos.
Musically, DEROSNEC is a singer, performer, and composer. With her unusually low voice and wide operatic vocal range, she makes music that pulls from all genres of the musical world to create a moody, personal, and fresh sound. Her lyrics range from politics and philosophy to her own experience and feelings, and are unusually straightforward while being simultaneously laced with double meanings and word play.
She works closely with the band Model M and Everson Poe.
Nina Helene Hirten, known as DEROSNEC, is a multimedia artist with a focus on audiovisual
storytelling. Raised by an opera singer and a composer, her childhood was surrounded by music, and much of the time she found herself sitting through concerts and drawing pictures of the images that she would get from her listening experience. She was taught to sing operatically at a very young age, and soon taught herself to play many instruments such as guitar, bass, drums, and piano.
Nina released her first self produced album in grade 10, and distributed over 150 of them around her high school. She quickly became known as the “resident musician”, and when the opportunity arose later that year to join a multimedia course that worked with video, she found her calling and decided to pursue film with the intention of making music based cinema.
By the time Nina left to study Film Production at Ryerson University in Toronto, Ontario, she already had two short films play in various festivals around California, and had released two selfproduced
albums. Upon graduating, she moved to Vancouver, BC and started up her own production company, Oh Just Peachy Studios Productions, which currently serves as the primary vehicle for producing both her music and her film work.
MISSION STATEMENT .
DEROSNEC is dedicated to redefining the “music video”. Pulling from the concept of “rockopera”
films such as Pink Floyd’s “The Wall” and The Who’s “Tommy”, she writes music with corresponding videos and movies in mind.
DEROSNEC is uniquely capable as a multimedia artist. Her audiovisual intentions are immediately brought into reality, ready to be shared and experienced. Thanks to years of practice as a professional video producer and independent music maker, DEROSNEC’s important themes and messages of strength, self confidence, perseverance, and emotional/spiritual growth are able to spread through a unique medium that is complemented by the needs and expectations of the digital age.
