HIVE with Film

HIVE has created music and sound for screen works by artists and film-makers. Below are some examples of these live and recorded sound track projects.

‘La Révolution…’ live score at Belfast Film Festival

In 2018, HIVE Choir collaborated with Isobel Anderson to produce a live score performance for Pierre Clémenti’s La Révolution n’est pas qu’un Début. Continuons le combat.

The live score contained texts chosen by HIVE Choir in response to feminist movements, amplified with megaphones and augmented with sounds from handheld radios.

Performed at Uprising: The Spirit of ’68 for Belfast Film Festival and BFI Film Audience Network.

Hand to Mouth

In 2019, HIVE Choir collaborated with visual artist Nollaig Molloy to create sounds for a video artwork of hand gestures demonstrating the motions of traditional Irish crafting techniques. The resulting video was Hand to Mouth.

Hand to Mouth was exhibited at Normal Position, Show Position, Platform Arts, Belfast 2019. HIVE performed live with the video at the exhibition opening.
