Some Distance from the Sun

Some Distance from the Sun – a film by Dalziel & Scullion (UK, 2007)

“Mark Vernon’s, minimal, muted and sharply alien electronica, which was composed expressly for Some Distance From The Sun, believably conjures land plants’ possible interior sound realms, their root systems as well as their visible trunks and flowers, as well as the more primitive sea borne algae and seaweeds… Vernon’s soundtrack explodes the minutia of things – maybe the soundworld really is in the ear of the beholder.”

From the essay, ‘Some Distance from the Plant World’ by Oliver Lowenstein.

Commissioned soundtrack for a film by Dalziel and Scullion. Exhibited as an installation at Aberdeen Art Gallery, February – April, 2007.
