BlemishedEye Mobile Images Accompanied By British Composer, Edmund Hunt’s Music

Share

We were delighted when David Booker aka BlemishedEye contacted us last week with news of this wonderful project that he had embarked upon with British Composer, Edmund Hunt. David contacted Edmund last year to ask if he might consider creating a piece of music to accompany some of his very special images. The result is quite spectacular. David explains, “After familiarising himself with my photography, he obliged and in early January 2014 sent me a short composition entitled ‘Ungelic is Us’ (a line from the Old English poem Wulf and Eadwacer, meaning ‘it is different for us’).  This video is the resulting collaboration”.

Edmund’s work has been played in the UK and abroad by ensembles including Psappha, The Northern Sinfonia, Birmingham Conservatoire Symphony Orchestra, CHROMA, BCMG, ICARUS Vocal Ensemble, The Curious Chamber Players and CoMA (Contemporary Music for All).  Much of Edmund’s music is inspired by the early mediaeval literature of northern Europe, and his PhD explores this area through the creation of vocal, instrumental and electronic works. Although he often uses early texts, his approach is innovative and contemporary.

Vocals are provided by Lucie Louvrier.  Mezzo-soprano Lucie trained in Paris (Sorbonne, Schola Cantorum) before moving to England to study at Birmingham Conservatoire, where she was awarded an MMus in Vocal Performance with Distinction by the Conservatoire. Lucie was also awarded the Advanced Performance Certificate by the Birmingham School of Acting.

We really think you’ll be quite mesmerized by this, we certainly were.
