While contrast can be good if used effectively, currently it's kind of just jarring and doesn't really deliver a message in my opinion. I think roughening up the text parts might be a good way to go if you want to deliver this somber melancholic feeling.

The use of sound seems pretty good, although I might try to use more and maybe kill the music all together. The music sticks out like a sore thumb and kind of breaks the mood instead of enhancing it; either get a real pianist playing the piano and try going for something more electronic and minimalistic.
I know that there are some problem with the video. It's my first movie with iMovie.
Maybe the next video will be better.
Remember that before Dispersio, music, drawing and programming were all hobbies for me (18yo) and my brother (16yo) and this is the first time we try to put all together (however I thinks that it isn't a bad work).
With the second, third and following chapter we'll increase our experience and all will look better.
