Son et Lumières
Nick Cope, Tim Howle - 2006

Duration: 7' 20

Using visual techniques analogous to methods of electro acoustic composition, Son et Lumières builds on the successful collaboration between composer Tim Howle and film maker Nick Cope. Filming the Fawley Oil Refinery at night on the banks of Southampton Water, England, the footage is manipulated both in camera, through single frame shooting and exposure manipulation as well as double exposing the film, before further manipulation and treatment of the footage is carried out in post production. In this collaboration the footage was then edited and multi layered to the already to a revision on an already composed piece of music, in contrast to and mirroring the collaborative methods employed in our previous work - Open Circuits.
