The music video Sunflower Sutra is about finding your totem in the animal kingdom. The rooster, hare and pig; that stand for the constellations of My Baby’s band members, go through different phases where they discover their self during the totem ceremony. The video is divided into three sections: birth, ceremony and rebirth, each represented by a new twist in the track’s pacey sense of snaking momentum. The spiritual animals eventually breaking apart after finding their personal totem and feeling stronger than before. All handmade masks, outfits, and magic settings come together in a new surrealistic prehistoric dance world where it’s about finding your spiritual animal.
Musicvideo for “The Weight”, a journey through 60s and 70s Vinyl-Covers.
The music video is a testament to the resilient nature of children and their ability to overcome the biggest of pitfalls, though the most dangerous things in their paths are often people themselves. The depicted uniformity after death signifies that we are all equal in the face of death, regardless
of ethnicity, religion or gender. The music video will end with information about the number of child refugees around the world today.
Magpie Eyes reimagines the 90s band as teenagers in the modern day and follows them around the sleepy market suburb of Stevenage, UK – the first of the government’s post-war Utopias. The film celebrates a distinct sense place and what it’s like to grow up in a British suburb, mixing stills and moving images of the local kids in and around the New Town architecture.

Everything is a form of vibration,
One needs to hear it and transform it into music
The world is a piano and the piano is the world
The musician becomes the creator of the world
Poppy Ackroyd is a British post-classical composer.
Her main instruments are the piano and the violin, but she doesn’t treat them in a classical way.
She creates her pieces by sampling sounds, beats and rhythms she generates by tapping the housing and strings of her instruments. She loops and records them, successively adding further layers of sound, until a new orchestral space is achieved. She completes this by adding the clean sound of a classical piano.
This process has inspired the narration of my film.
The world is seen as a vibration, and everything in it is seen as rhythm and repetition.
Nature pulsates, creating a transcendental pulse.
Poppy, as a Demiurge, responds to the rhythm or creates it herself.
Both worlds – elements of nature and the space within her instrument – coexist and filter through each other. This coexistence is reflected in the picture. Life is a journey and the strings, just like railway tracks, mark the direction. The world is enclosed in the piano, and the piano becomes the world.
The world vanishes when Poppy stops playing.
The film was created to promote Poppy Ackroyd’s single and her third album.
Both the film and the single ’Trains’ will premiere on nowness.com in November 2017. The album will be released by One Little Indian on the 26th of January 2018 in the UK, France, Germany, Japan and Australia.
The film has received a number of prizes and was shown at many short film festivals around the world.
