A beautiful film – Silence of our Alpine

Beautifully shot film by Ross Mackay from Stash Media. It is shot around the mountain Treble Cone Ski Area in New Zealand. I was delighted when he asked if he could used my piece, ‘Maxwell’s Light’. The film has been skill-fully edited so that it mirrors the music really closely.

Maxwell’s Light was originally commissioned by Orkney Science Festival in celebration of the scientist, James Clerk Maxwell and is featured on their Album, “Music for Maxwell“.

I really enjoyed learning more about Maxwell and his accomplishments. I was asked to explore the abstract territory that Maxwell worked in – the territory of darkness and light and of abstract form.

 

 

Leap for a Laugh – Paragon music

Paragon are making funny videos to raise the profile and raise money so they can continue delivering music/dance workshops

Paragon are an inclusive music company inspiring people to create and perform their own music. Raising people’s self belief and aspirations through music making and dance.

For this video, I asked my friends (Mike, Kenny, Ninian and Diljeet) to send me a video of themselves playing any note(s)/ noise in the key of C. Nobody heard what anybody else did and this was the result when put together! I hope you like!
