I would have enjoyed Leon Vinehall’s “Envelopes (Chapter VI)” if I had simply heard it as a piece of music. But seeing it realized as a haunting black and white video was strangely moving.
This is a really interesting piece – he is telling a story with music, then adding images to enhance the sound. Film works the opposite way – you tell the story with images, then use music to enhance the visuals.
The way he’s created this is very powerful and hard to shake once you’ve seen it.
It’s a beautiful and haunting expression of loss that keeps drawing me back.
