New Jersey singer songwriter Kristy Chmura shot the video for her latest single, ‘Abandoned House’, in a friend’s beautiful Victorian home, situated in Bloomfield, New Jersey. She makes a commanding presence at her harp, playing with complete authority.
In the video, Kristy spends most of her time in a room haunted by memories. She paces the room, across the wooden floorboards, leafs through a box of letters she finds under the bed, and sits at an old table. There is a haunting object in the room with her, a white sheet draped over an object of human size. It looks very much like a ghost, particularly from the shooting angle chosen by director Rob Fitzgerald, also responsible for her previous clip, ‘Nothing’s Right’. Chmura walks to the object, and dramatically reveals that it’s in fact, a harp.
Chmura is a dedicated student of folk and classical harp, as well as a teacher, and director of New Jersey’s Summer Harp Camp. ‘Stained…Glass Heart’ is her latest album, and on it she demonstrates her prowess, and her considerable skill with the instrument.
