Water in nature has a mystical quality which is comforting to some people but unsettling to others. With an original soundtrack, this video seeks to evoke such a quality through an inter-modality alchemy of vocal sounds (breathing, whispering and humming) and field recording combined with the more abstract visual elements of waves.

Yup, that really is a TV in space, for real. I created this video by sending a vintage Sony TV into orbit on a weather balloon provided by Sent Into Space, surrounded by cameras so as to capture this spectacular footage hovering above the Big Blue Marble itself.
More precisely, it took two launches - both from Snowdonia in Wales, with two identical TVs, with each launch providing the opportunity to rig the GoPros in different positions.
I'm pleased to say that all TVs in this music video were harmed as they crash-landed back to earth. We sent the TV off from Snowdonia and it landed in Bury, Manchester - taking in my hometown of Warrington on the way which can be seen in the promo. I'm proud to say that the TV got 99.997% above the atmosphere - it cleared the Armstrong line by nearly double (Line is at 19km we got to 34km)
