Crab & Bee made ‘Ghost Ship’ in response to work sent to us relating to divers and ghosts after our UNFIX workshop; this short film was made beside a now dry river bed in Devon (UK) where ships from the Mediterranean once came to trade for tin and other metals as long as 4,000 years ago.
“In response to Score 4 I wrote a short sound track using hydrophone recordings and music generated from an eleven string guitar (broke a peg in the dim and distant). This was tuned in a system loosely based on pi and material generated using a string sustainer. The film was made from the burn opposite my home and across the adjacent main road, braving the traffic to the side where the burn re-emerges. (Alison Beattie)”
