Where To Build In Stone

An audio-visual project in collaboration with Numb Mob

Inspired by the shapes and sounds of Kingston upon Hull, Where To Build In Stone is an audio-visual project that explores the city over the course of a day. The film focuses on the quiet drama in the scenes that are everywhere yet overlooked: the familiar seen from an unfamiliar perspective.

Originally screened with a live performance of the soundtrack by Numb Mob for the PRS New Music Biennial 2019, the music weaves a variety of electronics, acoustic instruments and field recordings into a vivid soundscape that evokes a mysterious and oddly beautiful side of Hull.
