A video installation comprised of two large wall projections showing the same closely cropped footage of a conductor’s hands and face, the soundtrack of the film —which consists of the entire score of Vertigo directed by Alfred Hitchcock and composed by Bernard Hermann in 1958, is the subject being conducted and played at high volume.

This gathering and performance were just one result of this project as much of it involved interactions and rehersals between strangers, over the 18 months of intermitent pre-production work the singers learned Shape Note and Sufi singing together as family, performing songs that are commonly sang in private and for the purpose of contemplation, prayer and solidarity. Produced, filmed and installed in location in Brierfield, Lancashire, England.
