Lux Ex Tenebris', Latin for 'Light from Darkness, follows a solitary traveler dreaming of driving the darkness out of her dystopian world. Her strength and courage bring the light to life for hope. When we first talked with Kim about the meaning of the piece, he stated it very fittingly: ”It’s as much an appeal to the audience to find the light in the darkest of times as it is a protest song to unite and fight division amongst us.”

Born to immigrant parents as the youngest of nine children, Timon grew up in Stuttgart, Germany. During his first life as a musician, he started making music videos for his own bands and other artists such as A-ha, AVICII, and The Weeknd. His passion for timeless storytelling helped Timon transition to advertising. Today, brands like Adidas, Porsche, and Maserati trust his directorial approach to tell stories that inspire audiences of all ages around the world.
