The Mute Still Air – a film by Ed Carter and Grimethorpe Colliery Band
The Mute Still Air is a sculptural sound installation, musical instrument, and graphic score project by artist and composer Ed Carter, performed with Grimethorpe Colliery Band, and filmed by James Lockey.
Originally commissioned for Elsecar Heritage Centre, the piece reflects on the significance of social responsibility within a brutal commercial industry, taking inspiration from the cultural impact of Benjamin Biram’s pioneering engineering work at the Elsecar coal mine in South Yorkshire.
