Some nicely restrained and beautifully filmed improvisation courtesy of Team Sports at the Nihilists event in Abergavenny, Wales. From the link:
The Nihilists is a series of outdoor installations temporarily located on the Sugar Loaf mountain near Abergavenny. The installations generate electricity in order to illuminate their futility.
Team Sports (Matthew Lovett, Jimmy Ottley & Ian Watson) is a sound performance that explores the relationship between a musician and their surroundings. Using the physical environment as a musical score, the group respond to sounds, visual stimuli, and other environmental occurrences to create a piece that engages with all aspects of the sound continuum.
