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.
