Director Statement

Green spaces in Glasgow were a huge lifeline during lockdown and inspired lots of music that I was producing over 2020 and 2021. I wanted to create an extended music video featuring three new tracks that gave me the chance to play these pieces and capture new video footage in the green spaces that inspired them.
