David Knight - 23rd May 2014

Tobias Stretch has been creating wonderful films, carefully animating his self-made sculptural works (and more recently incorporating live action), for some years now. It's fully five years since his beautiful award-winning film for Radiohead's Weird Fishes. 

But as a combination of extraordinary imagery - and a storyline - with modern-classical track, Tobias's film to accompany composer Christopher Bono's choral work Unity could be his greatest achievement thus far. It's absolutely amazing.

'Masterpiece' is a big, important word. But sometimes you just have to say it.
