Outlaw King

Musical contribution (nyckelharpa and vocal improvisation) to Outlaw King, 2018 Netflix film. 

Directed by David Mackenzie, Starring Chris Pine. 

A true David vs. Goliath story of how the 14th century Scottish 'Outlaw King' Robert the Bruce used cunning and bravery to defeat the much larger and better equipped occupying English army.

Cryosphere

Film by Lucie Treacher with musical and filming contributions by

Joaquim Badia and Catalin Filip. Supported by Creative Scotland. 

Cryosphere is an epic musical and visual journey into the Inchindown oil tunnels in the Highlands of Scotland, which hold the world record for the longest echo in the world. This extended music video weaves stunning archival footage of the North Sea oil rigs with evocative original music composed for the space. Making music at Inchindown is like painting with sound: creating giant sonic gestures in the space, which build up and bleed into each other and lose their meaning as they become blurred. This corrosion of sound in the space becomes deeply symbolic, questioning the human and environmental sacrifices made in the search for oil.

Screened at Eden Court Inverness and 504 Arch London, 2019

Sea Songs

Film by Lucie Treacher and Catalin Filip

Music by Lucie Treacher, with singing and sea soundscapes in collaboration with Brora Primary School 

Funded by Young Scot's Future Routes

In the North East Coast of Scotland, the sea is a constant presence in people’s lives, whether it be visual, sonic, physical or spiritual. In times before however, the sea had a much more powerful impact on their lives and livelihoods. Sea Songs explores this interaction between people and the sea, weaving symbols and ghosts of the past into the narrative in a contemporary way. The film is divided into conceptual chapters: each introduces a surreal local superstition, which is narrated by local children. Their playful voices bind these echoes of the past with present. There are underlying environmental connotations throughout the film, and our own human impact and presence is represented by placing or leaving unusual objects in the landscape, and they become animate in someway as the wind or water plays with them. Essentially, Sea Songs explores the collision between the land and the sea and this frontier.

The project was screened from a pop-up cinema inside an ice house in Brora Harbour, Sutherland (pictured).

A piece for Balinese Gamelan

Music and film by Lucie Treacher.

Dance by Dewi Ariati. 

A kaleidoscope is a porthole through which we see the world. This concept is the starting point for  'Kaleidoscope', which uses gamelan, dance and film as a medium to explore cross-cultural encounters and the way in which our own cultural lens distorts our perception of the 'other'.

Pain Under the Microscope

Dir: Deborah Padfield and Helen Omand

Music by Lucie Treacher


Pain under the microscope is an artists film which takes the metaphor of a series of linked microscopes as its blue-print.  It uses footage from interviews with a range of experts (patients, clinicians and researchers) to explore pain through different lenses.  Images created through putting the materials of patients’ visual metaphors under the microscope will thread their way throughout the film alongside actual neuronal images. The film asks what is this thing called pain?  It provides no answers but weaves together material viewers can use to assemble their own understanding. 
 

Screened at UCL Encountering Pain Conference.
