"Everything I Can See From Here" is a 7 minute short animated film brought to us by Hackney based creative collective, The Line Studio. This self initiated project has been a 2 year long labour of love for the animation team, and as production drew to a close BXFTYS stepped in to claim a slice of the action.
Line Studio leads, Bjorn-Erik Aschim and Sam Taylor, expressed their appreciation for the acclaimed sounds of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. A 70's Doctor Who vibe seemed an appropriate route for us to take given the science fiction aspects of the story. It was time to wheel out the Analogue Modular System!
In particular, we used the modular system to create crickets, wind, spaceship sounds and much of the musical elements that can be heard throughout the film. Musical elements included recordings of a guitar, a slowed down medley of hand drums and laughter all routed and processed through the modules. The analogue approach was invaluable in attaining the right temperament for the closing track. We wanted the theme to carry a sense of fun, carried by the rhythm, yet convey elements of unease and trepidation.
