Selected for Supernova 2016. A film poem combining words, images and music. As always, the process is cyclical - an idea, some filming, a search for music, then back to the idea again. But with words also involved, there was also an interaction between the images, the music and words that developed through the process.
While searching for 'fields' on Free Music Archive, I discovered 'A Sad Song for Junction City Fields' by The Fucked Up Beat. I had already decided on the opening visual of the radio, and this coincided wonderfully with the public domain voice they had put into their audio. I couldn't quite tell what was being spoken, but could pick up parts of it that led to me to think more about the railroad not simply being a rusted junction but also a metaphor for other divisions.
I wrote a blog post about this machinima: tizzycanucci.com/2016/09/25/of-music-spheres-and-emotions/
