My ode to ‘Mr. Nobody’ by Jaco Van Dormael.

I’ve always been very intrigued by quantum mechanics and its philosophical implications. Is there another world where I made different choices? Better choices perhaps? Are there other versions of myself in parallel universes?

‘Mr. Nobody’ is a beautiful movie by Belgian director Jaco Van Dormael dealing with these questions. It’s a wonderful visualisation of these philosophical issues interwoven with a touching love story.

After watching the movie, I wrote the lyrics and music of ‘Stuck in one universe’ in one rush the next morning. I don’t think I ever wrote and finished a track that fast. The video is my ode to ‘Mr. Nobody’ and a salute to Jaco Van Dormael.

Watch the video on youtube.
