Fall of a window cleaner

In May 2011, the group spent a week in a remote studio in the Scottish Borders, recording new works with electronics composers. Since then, many of the composers have gone on to develop their pieces further and Julien Longchamp has compiled a video to accompany the work, Fall of a window cleaner.

The video was recently used as part of a live performance in Glasgow. Julien writes:

This short film was developed as a visual response to the piece I developed with Mr McFall's Chamber during our electronic workshop. I actually composed the music with a clear narrative, that of a window cleaner falling down a building and somehow getting sucked into it. As the structure gradually falls apart, he is not sure anymore if him escaping is a reality or just a thought. So when I was asked to produce a new piece for the Arches LIVE Festival, I took the opportunity to shoot this short film in the derelict space of the Arches, which I thought matched the suspenseful atmosphere we created in the music. Thanks again to Mr McFall's Chamber for an inspiring collaboration!
