Short Film: TRAINS – RADIO CUT, 3min., UK, Music Video

Poppy trains jolakudela

music video
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.

Short Film: Samfælni: Busby Berkeley’s Dream Aberrations, 2min., UK, Experimental/Music Video

Poster

Samfælni: Busby Berkeley’s Dream Aberrations explores different phobias in the form of early Hollywood’s extravaganzza, where rejection and attraction for mystery will dance in harmony unveiling a coordinated series of familiar shapes performing the abstract. It could be seen as an undesired tribute to the great choreographer Busby Berkeley.
