(09:30 / Documentary)

This was one of those films that just 'happened' and became something quite special, largely because of the weather. Tagging along on a promise to document a recording, I had very little idea of what was going to happen until we arrived. In such conditions I wouldn't have dared shoot some of the footage on a camera of higher quality, and the lo-fi DV aesthetic complements the snowed-off-and-stripped-down nature of the band's performance nicely. We ran out of daylight and had to resort to a torch and then nightvision, but it somehow adds to the scrappy charm.

 

These binaural recordings are about experiencing a one-off, live version of the music in a totally unique way… with binaural artist Dallas Simpson being the ‘vessel’ for bringing the music to your ears.

Recorded using tiny microphones worn in Simpson’s ears to capture the sound exactly as he is hearing it, certain songs lend themselves to different spaces in order to be stripped right back for a rudimentary performance.

When you listen back on headphones, then it’s you who hears the music in the same way, like you were actually there in the environment. The sound of the instruments, voices and the ambience of the location are all captured in 3D surround sound so you’re sonically transported to that time and place each time you listen to the track.
