This is an early example of the use of ‘soundscaping’ through cut-ups and ‘bricollage’ to create ‘implied narratives’, a theme which recurs in GALLIVANT. The film evokes the disembodied voices of the hoi-polloi, manifest as ‘animistic presence’ within the landscape. Part home-movie and part diary the work shows various friends and family that passed through my life in the French Pyrenees when we first moved there in the early 90’s. It stars Eden and also features the voice of my grandmother Gladys.
Hoi Polloi sees the beginning of a fertile collaboration with the musician and composer David Burnand.
