Working closely with James Lavelle, Stephen Dobbie & Colin Nightingale, I created 2 videos for the Beyond The Road Exhibition at Saatchi Gallery summer 2019. The first piece was an installation-centered video using footage from Alfonso Cuaron’s ROMA, cut to the UNKLE track inspired by the film ‘On My Knees’ feat Michael Kiwanuka. The piece is projected onto a large ‘floating’ screen in the centre of dark room, where a full 360 audio set up surrounds the viewer with a specially curated version of the music, combined with sound effects that mesh together to immerse in all directions.
The second video was a 30 minute installation piece, featuring footage from the Danny Boyle directed series TRUST, combined with static noise, TV glitches and other effects. To create a bewildering but evolving visual accompaniment to the 360 audio of the room it was playing in. The video was housed in an old TV in the corner of one of the rooms, with key aspects of the soundtrack like lyrics coming out of the actual TV’s speaker while the rest of the music filled the surrounding space from various other speakers.
