(with support from Nive Nielsen and the Deer Children)
Best known for his twenty year-plus working relationship with PJ Harvey up to and including the 2011 Mercury Prize winning ‘Let England Shake’, John Parish is also an accomplished film composer, solo artist, producer and collaborator, contributing to albums by Eels, Sparklehorse, Tracy Chapman, Howe Gelb/Giant Sand and Rokia Traore, among many others. Coinciding with the release of a new album, ‘Screenplay’, this Filmic commission presents music from throughout Parish’s film-career, arranged for a specially formed ensemble plus additional guests, and accompanied by projections from the films.
