As the scene begins, Daniel brings her through the warehouse, surprising her with an intimate evening of champagne and creativity. With Daniel serenading his love interest the entire time. He professes his love to her as his muse, which is defined as a source of inspiration to the creative artist. 

Walking through the warehouse, Daniel’s muse then climbs the piano and begins to dance on top while he plays and continues to serenade her. The two are feeding off each other's energy, which leads to a heightened level of creative intimacy. Closing off the scene, rain begins to pour down, as Daniel and his Muse lock lips.
