‘Mountain Harmonica’ 2006-8*. Video loop,15mins.

The image pans round slowly, from dark forest to open plain to monumental mountain side, slowly rotating through this sequence of sublime mountain stereotypes.

The soundtrack is of a harmonica, notes and chords played for the length of a breath, in and out, haphazardly by myself.

The soundtrack explores the sublime landscape, referencing the transendence of a church organ, the lonely struggle of a mountain cowboy, or railway hobo, the discord of sublime anihilation and often just becoming itself, sound, not quite achieving music.
