The Sea Wrote It
The film The Sea Wrote is part of a wider project Overheard, funded by ACE. It seeks to unravel the connections between and within nature, sound and audiences through original compositions that blend field recordings, and instrumentation.
As humans, we have traditionally looked to folk music to document our lives, but also our relationship with the world around us. Through the lens of lockdown, our relationship with nature has shifted, many of us noticing the sounds around us more.
This film embraces the many ways that traditions, technology and nature are currently intertwining today, whilst sitting in the space and stillness that lockdown has brought about.
“The singing is hauntingly beautiful, the cast all have amazing operatic voices, accompanied by a live pianist. Nothing is more effective when the couple’s text argument is played out by piano. This is a must see for anyone who enjoys being inspired and redefining traditional genres.” – RACHEL FOSTER
