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 film centres around the culture of brass music, which it uses as a metaphor for ideas around community and belonging.
the film plays as an immersive screen sound and film installation, a structural metaphor for the story it tells through music.
