I was given a stack of used DV tapes to use in my documentary work, but some of them have old local news footage on them. I can't bring myself to just erase them, so I decided to use them to make music under my alter ego Bone Music

I use still frames from the footage within an image synthesizer called Alchemy to create an ambience from the colour and intensity of pixels within the image. I also use fragments of the original audio, manipulated by stretching, reversing and digital processing.

Director Statement

I have a passion for finding the music in the everyday, and for reviving old tech and forgotten moments. I make sound art as Bone Music, and this is one of my favourite projects - trawling old news DV tapes for interesting sounds to manipulate in to broadly unsettling pieces.
