PROJECTS

1.

'Planet City' is now showing at Melbourne Triennial, moving to Lisbon Maat Museum and Shanghai Bienniale this spring. The video installation by architect/director Liam Young features a 15 minute quadrophonic soundtrack by Forest Swords. The piece imagines a megacity that houses the entire population of the world, leaving the rest of the planet to recover from human impact.

 

2.

'Islands', the ballet piece choreographed by Emma Portner, returns for socially distanced shows at Oslo Opera House. The female duet, performed by two members of the Norwegian Ballet, includes a specially commissioned score by Forest Swords/Matthew Barnes.

 

3.

'Ghosts of Sugar Land', the Sundance-winning short documentary film by Bassam Tariq, is now streaming on Netflix. The piece, with an original soundtrack by Forest Swords, tells the story of a group of friends from Texas who have to deal with the fallout when one of them turns to extremism.
