When We Used To Go Somewhere_Variants – A Short Film By Liz Helman
Running Time 8.20
Made in the UK during the first stages of lockdown for the Covid-19 pandemic, the film explores dislocation alongside the longing to go somewhere; a freedom that was restricted for most of 2020.
The video is accompanied by a new soundtrack that appears as Invisible Future on the artist’s forthcoming album, The Yearning, released on the Flaming Pines label.
Liz Helman is a multi-disciplinary artist, working in time-based media.
She is London based, self-taught and with no formal training as a composer. As a multi-disciplinary artist, Liz has always had an interest in ambient music and sound art as a form of expression. Her work, both visual and sonic, is a response to place and environment. Sensitive to how these energies make her feel, she is interested in the subliminal and sonic exploration of these experiences. By walking the streets, and experiencing different levels of sounds, she begins her process with field recordings, making immersive and mesmerising drone based compositions that explore layers of sound and texture. She very much likes working organically, following the thread of the sound to its ultimate destination, which she likes to think of as sonic alchemy.
