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."
