Village Green 'Salvation' by Noah Harris & Andy Biddle
In an ambitious project for Village Green Recordings' album Salvation - which showcases the music of eight composers signed to the label - Noah Harris and Andy Biddle take us on a voyage through time and nothing less than the history of mankind, though the mesmerising animation of found objects.
It's actually a sequence of interconnecting films, each one representing a track and composer from the album, that can be savoured individually on the Salvation project website. But they also come together to tell an epic story of evolution, and the story is told from objects that have been salvaged from car-boot sales and flea markets around London, as the making of film shows.
From the birth of a planet in ELEMENT, the growth of the human race in SENTIENCE, and its descent towards the inevitable in OBLIVION, it's animated entirely in camera, and showcase Noah Harris’s unwavering attention to detail and love of physical objects.
