Composer and violinist, Ysanne best known for her work with rock band Smashing Pumpkins will launch her audio-visual masterpiece, The Coldwater Project with the debut of The Mermaid Song on May 13, 2013. Known for her work with the Smashing Pumpkins, as well as original film and television music, Ysanne’s The Mermaid Song will feature two accompanying short films consisting of a ten minute live-action film and a lyrical video that will be available exclusively in the digital-bundling package. All proceeds will benefit Sea Shepherd.

The Mermaid Song features the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, a 44-piece symphony orchestra, conducted by Ysanne, in Prague. Ysanne composed the song, arranged the strings, recorded the vocals, and also directed and starred in the films.

Shot in the Art Deco apartment of painter Gail Potocki in Chicago, that once housed legendary stars Gloria Swanson and Groucho Marx, the film is a sumptuously luxuriant cinematic feast for the eyes. Drenched in nostalgia, opulence, and fine craftsmanship, the film was shot almost entirely in one seamless take and showcases the extraordinary jewelry of Russell Lownsbrough alongside the exquisite paintings of Gail Potocki, who also appears in the film. Ysanne wears couture by Alexander McQueen and Terry de Havilland.

More about the Coldwater Project:

The Coldwater Project consists of thirteen songs, each presented with a beautiful film, and each partnered with a nonprofit and a brand, with all of the purchase proceeds being donated to the nonprofit. The Mermaid Song is the first release from The Coldwater Project. It is partnered with Sea Shepherd and LUSH Cosmetics as part of Ysanne’s innovative, compassionate campaign.

LUSH Cosmetics has created a mermaid-shaped bath bomb inspired by The Mermaid Song. The Mermaid Bath is handmade from fresh, natural ingredients, including wild seaweed, sea salt, and essential oils. All of the money from sales of the product will be generously donated to Sea Shepherd.
