When we open our eyes, our brain is hit with a vast array of visual experience. Colour, light, motion, objects and figures present the world, as we know it. When we close our eyes, the sense of hearing becomes heightened and we hear every nuance of sound as the brain tries to compensate. This in fact relates directly to the focal point of the story of ‘The Green Lady’, who sat with ‘steekit een’ from dusk until dawn. Within the framework of the art film, this project not only explores this phenomenon literally, but also in a broader conceptual sense, where sound is assigned an elevated role of responsibility.
‘The Green Lady’ is inspired by local folklore associated with Newton Castle and The River Ericht in Blairgowrie, Perthshire. The tale was set to poetry in the late 19th century and became known as ‘The Green Lady O’ Newton’. This is employed as a narrative device throughout the piece, along with the music composition and sound design.
