Vanishing Lands (2019)
Live film performance for music concert. Commissioned by Dog in the Snow / Bella Union. 45 minutes.
I could dream of anything and yet I dream of this...
A monochrome dream world slowly disintegrates, collapses and explodes until even the surface of the image itself dissolves, revealing a nightmarish apocalyptic world. But is it the future or is it a hallucinatory vision?
Helen Brown’s album debut for Bella Union is Vanishing Lands, an imposing, haunting and luminous collection of songs in the darker spaces between dream-pop, art-rock and electronica, lifted by euphoric melodies, ravishing vocals and absorbing lyrics.
