This was an extremely enjoyable project I was commissioned to do by Aldeburgh music and was shot over the course of a day and a half by myself.
All of the shots were done using the Sony NEX-FS100 with the E18-200mm lens. It was edited in Premiere Pro CS5.5 with the colour grading and a few other effects added using After Effects CS5.5.
'I Burn for You' is an atmospheric new music theatre work inspired by Bram Stoker's legendary vampire novel Dracula, created by composer Ian Wilson and stage director Tom Creed.
It brings together an astonishing line up of performers including the Hungarian death metal vocalist Attila Csihar (Mayhem, Sunn O))), and Void of Voices) -- whose remarkable voice has been described as operatic -- in the vampyric role.
He is joined by virtuosic vocal improvisers Phil Minton and Elaine Mitchener and acclaimed musicians including saxophonist Cathal Roche, accordionist Clive Bell and electro-acoustic improviser David Toop.
