Catherine Yass: Lighthouse
Working with artist Catherine Yass I used lots of muffled and ominous sea sounds to create the soundtrack for her latest film "Lighthouse" which was previewed at the De la Warr Pavilion in june. It was filmed from a boat and helicopter orbiting the Royal Sovereign Lighthouse, five miles out to sea, just visible from the Pavilion. Yass describes her interest in the project:
"I am fascinated by the structure of the lighthouse, balanced precariously on the corner of the platform, which is in turn balanced on its post. The platform looks too heavy for the post, as though it might topple over at any moment. And yet it survives all weathers and tides, standing throughout them with its odd sense of gravity."

Catherine Yass: High Wire
I created the sound for Highwire a new film by the artist Catherine Yass. A multi-screen film and video installation, High Wire was filmed at the Red Road housing scheme in North Glasgow when French high wire artist Didier Pasquette attempted to walk between three of the high rise tower blocks. The event turned out to be somewhat anti-climatic with high winds leading Pasquette to abandon his walk after several steps out onto the wire and, terrifyingly, retrace his path....
Originally shown at the Centre for Contemporary Arts in Glasgow it has since be exhibited at the German Gymnasium in London and at the Whitworth in Manchester.

The piece consisted of four separate sound channels routed to four outdoor speakers mounted high in the treetops.
