Rye Harbour Nature Reserve
Jamie worked collaboratively with a film-maker, The Friends of Rye Harbour Nature Reserve and The Sussex Wildlife Trust to create an abstract soundscape for a commissioned short drone film. The soundtrack is made entirely from the sounds of the reserve which have been manipulated to create a sense of tension and rise and fall, befitting of the life-and-death competition between the wildlife native to the beautiful reserve. The film was used by the reserve as an advert and also shown at a number of local cinemas.
The Lily Pond
The Lily Pond is an audio-visual installation, consisting of three large projector screens and 6.1 channel surround sound. It is inspired by Monet’s Water Lilies series of paintings (1914 – 1926), in a modernisation of their concepts. The work runs for a total length of 2 hours, creating a slow moving and enveloping spectacle on a grand scale, which can’t be interpreted in the same way from any viewpoint or temporal instance. It uses field recordings and video taken at Monet’s garden in Giverny, as well as images taken of his paintings at Musée de l’Orangerie in Paris, re-imagining the works and expanding them into a multi-sensory environment, within a contemporary context.
