A collaborative, multi-disciplinary project with Isaac Sakima and Craghead Colliery Band, a traditional brass band from an ex-mining village in the North of England. The work centres around the seemingly alien cultures of electronic and brass music, and bridging this divide through the project was used to discuss ideas around community and belonging.
I spent a period of months facilitating a musican collaboration between Sakima and the Craghead Colliery Band. As they developed a piece of music together that explored the relationship between their different traditions, we filmed in locations around County Durham (where the band are based) and London (where Sakima is based). Sakima mixed the final piece and we then created an immersive 360 degree audio-visual work that played in the Music School of Durham Cathedral for the duration of Durham International Festival (BRASS).
The film plays as an immersive screen sound and film installation, a structural metaphor for the story it tells through music.
