The Storms

Process Notes:

The Storms is part of an ongoing collaboration with a friend. He’s a musician and sound engineer / designer.

The Storm is verse specifically composed/conceived as part of a piece of music. I compose verse, record it and develop a musical sketch – as part of the process. Then I share this with Olli (my friend) and he works his musical magic – and we take it from there.

In this case, I sent him the recorded verse and serendipity gate-crashed the exchange. Olli had already been working on a specific piece of music and my verse (The Storm) felt like a good match. After developing /fleshing out the verse some more – we recorded it and Olli wove together his composition and mine.

I saw this (again) as an opportunity to make a film. The ‘stock footage’ here includes the clouds, the storm at sea, the orange ‘wormhole’, and the trains. The rest is my own picture-making. I resist using ‘found-footage’ / stock-footage – but in this case, a felt it appropriate. I also treated the footage in ways I hope created a common weave and thread (with the rest of the material).

This film is essentially a poetry film – although I’m not certain I regard my verse as a poem. I’m not sure either if I regard the verse as song lyrics – because I don’t sing them but rather recite them. I’m aware of becoming interested in using my voice as an instrument. So in this regard, the recording of my voice and verse has an affinity with song.

The excitement of working with sound and picture continues unabated – exploring the opportunities of creating a space where neither sound nor picture is completely a slave to the other.
