Honour Wave

Promo for Daniel O’Sullivan’s song Honour Wave taken from the album ‘Folly’ Released on Ogenesis Recordings The concept for this film came during a prolonged period of insomnia. In my hallucinatory state of sleep deprivation I conceived of an Earth that had been re-generated by a utopian biological artificial Intelligence. Dragged from my subconscious were botanical drawings and paintings of Marianne North. The beautiful environments of Alberto Uderzo. The heady psychedelia of Heinz Edelmann and the album art of Rodney Matthews which I relentlessly copied as a child. The images and mood of the film influenced by Daniel’s beautiful album Folly described by The Quietus thus: ‘It is is a sign of Folly’s effectiveness that it frequently feels physically impossible to place attention anywhere else while being swept up almost bodily into one of the many hypnotic moments on an album where time becomes secondary to inhabiting O’Sullivan’s word- and music-streams of effulgent, charismatic genius.’ Richard Fonternoy – The Quietus This project begins a new visual journey with an unknown destination. A short film? A Comic? A web series?. A prog jazz concept album with accompanying book? Watch this space! For now please enjoy this piece and the wonderful music of ‘Daniel O-Sullivan’. Daniel O’Sullivan is a composer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist living and working in London and has been contributing a vibrant, chameleonic brew to the music landscape since the late 1990’s. He has achieved international acclaim writing, recording and performing with Grumbling Fur (with longtime friend and collaborator Alexander Tucker), Ulver, Sunn O))), Guapo, Miracle, Æthenor and the recent reincarnation of This Heat in the form of This Is Not This Heat. http://mothlite.blogspot.co.uk/ http://ogenesisrecordings.comm http://www.gregmcleod.uk http://www.bromc.uk
