"Empyrean" is a music video developed by Ganesh Rao and Jonny Greenwald at the Dept. of Visualization at Texas A&M University under the guidance of Professor Karen Hillier. The objective was to create a visually intriguing cinematic experience with stunning technicality and conceptual elements. Minimal and symbolic characters and sets were used to vaguely portray themes of 'genesis' with underlying elements of the Hindu mythology.
