Sounds from Beneath
(GBR 2012, HD, 6 Min. 45 Sek, enOF)
For Sounds from Beneath, the artist Mikhail Karikis asked a male coalminers’ choir to remember the sounds they used to hear when they worked in the mine and sing them on top of a disused Kentish coal mine. The video, at once political and poetic, depicts the desolate disused mining site brought back to life through song.
