Euan McMeeken (The Kays Lavelle, Mini 50 Records) also records solo piano compositions under the pseudonym Glacis. His latest Glacis release was composed for Jamie Mills’ short film Tohu Va Vohu. From Mills’ website:
<sup>soundtrack:</sup> <em>Tohu Va Vohu</em>, by Glacis
ng-left: 30px;”>Tohu Va Vohu is an animation that explores how the world is made up of chaotic, cyclical patterns and structures and how these are affected through time and human influence.
The animation will clock in at under six minutes. McMeeken’s nearly 16-minute soundtrack allows for two different films — one scored
by “Spring/Summer” and another by “Winter/Autumn” — as well as some off-camera material (“Be Silent. Be Still.” and “Silver to Gold”). Stream it here, and watch the trailer below.
We haven’t seen the entire film yet, but from the sound of things, it’s heartbreaking. McMeeken’s piano compositions — as recorded by Ana Roman — are displaced with regret and slow longing. Whispers of cello (Guy Gelem) fulfill the promise of the title, Hebrew for “without form and void.”
