The creators of the film ‘El Mar, Mi Alma’ and the LP Headland sound/track have collaborated on a new visual album centred on the Lennox/Byron coastline.
HEADLAND began in 2013 as a soundtrack to a collection of super8 film pictures depicting surfing and coastal culture in the 1970s. Contemporary footage by award winning filmmaker STEPHEN L. JONES, ‘El Mar, M i Alma’ (2012), overscores each composition for their second full -length release. This fine art collaboration is performed as a visual album, consisting of original musical scores played to projected film sequences.
