Parys Mountain is a collaboration between Composer, Filmmaker, Photographer and Artistic director Nick Parkin and Choreographer, Artist, Performer, Co-Artistic Director Marie-Gabrielle Rotie.
Parys Mountain recieved funding for Research and Development from the Arts Council of Wales in 2011. The project is currently being developed through further applications for research and development funding.
The work explores entropy, post-industrial wastelands and dystopia. We are working closely with the unqiue history, geology and archaelogy of this site. We are currently exploring the possibility of fusing sound, image and film to create an 'expanded cinema' installation.
Parys Mountain Research currently comprises:
- a DVD compilation of various edited films,
- a CD of sound scores and compositions,
- a body of photographic documentation and a PDF promotional publication.
- performances on film
- The research was presented at Goldsmiths University of London November 2012 as a research presentation (PRF forum George Wood Theatre.)
