Harvest Films | 2016
Silence / Sound is a collaboration between Pat Collins and Tadhg O’Sullivan that presents a unique sonic version of Collins’s 2012 feature film ‘Silence’.
The film tells the story of Eoghan, a sound recordist who is returning to Ireland for the first time in fifteen years. The reason for his return is a job: to record landscapes free from man-made sound. His quest takes him to remote terrain, away from towns and villages. Throughout his journey, he is drawn into a series of encounters and conversations which gradually divert his attention towards a more intangible silence, one that is bound up with the sounds of the life he had left behind.
Paring back what was already a sparse, meditative work, Silence / Sound is an immersive journey through the sonic geography of Eoghan’s route and into the sonic memories that emerge from it.
First Edition of 500 copies each one hand numbered.
