"Cool, ethereal, innovative, strange, beautiful. Like a magical dream..." STEVE COOGAN
"From the conception of this simple idea, through capture and edit this is a quiet masterpiece. It's what you would wish for in the best modern opera or ballet. It leaves just enough space for you to create your own personal story whilst carrying you with a perfect blend of music and cinematography to another more poetic world." HENRY NORMAL
"In an age where the art of the album and attention spans are compromised, this film forces us to listen from start to finish. It is a total thing of beauty". NADINE SHAH
