A Work in Progress: Slightly Before, Just After

I’m currently working on a short film of a string quartet re-imagining Schubert’s 1815 lied Meeresstille (Calm Sea). My composition is based on a loose transcription of a slowed and distorted recording of the original song by Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau and Gerald Moore. The film was shot at the Royal Northern College of Music, directed by me with camera operated by Lucas Martin and sound recording by David Coyle.

The piece is still being developed but here are a couple of preview extracts I’ve put together so far…

Thanks to members of the Aomori Quartet performing here (violins: Hugh Blogg / Rebecca Smith; cello: Chris Terrepin; guest violist: Kay Stephen).
