'Dumka' by Paul Carr and Eddie Farrell provided additonal music to a film by Jenna Collins; More Real Than the Everyday World. Seaming To has composed and will perform live much of the music to MORE REAL THAN THE EVERYDAY WORLD.
Working with a selection of amateur fiction films held by the North West Film Archive, MORE REAL THAN THE EVERYDAY WORLD disrupts normal relations between the present and archive material by attempting a collaboration with the original filmmakers via their completed productions. Running through the work are questions about the process and activity of writing narrative fiction, about what it might articulate, bring into being or exorcise for the writers themselves. Moving between the humour, violence and unfathomable intentions of the original films, the result is a series of episodes that variously attempt to extend, question, join in with and answer back to the archives collection.
MORE REAL THAN THE EVERYDAY WORLD is the result of GLEANERS a month-long residency at the North West Film Archive commissioned by Abandon Normal Devices.
