Here is a video of a track from Vanity Project, called Pentecost.

So this is living;
all snot and sacrament,
clocks with blank faces,
I’m utterly floored.
I’d dry your feet with my hair
but, ‘you know’, friction burns.
With every head bowed, every eye closed,
it’s Pentecost.

So this is breathing;
tongues of the angels,
the tears of my fathers
bed down on my cheeks.
‘Is that oil on your hands?’
No, I’m just a sweaty man
with an earthquake in my heart
at Pentecost.

As a young man, I had vision.
As an old man, let me dream.
So this is falling;
it’s not the first time.
Oh God, when you smile.
Oh God, when you smile.
Sing your evening perfume songs,
scratch our names upon a wall.
Rise up and walk
to Pentecost.

More Vanity Project Stills

I’ve added 10 more stills to the Vanity Project gallery, which were taken during the winter of 2017.

Vanity Project is a 40 minute film that I am making about what happens when you don’t get your dreams. The film is a collage of my daily commute on the A38 and the audio is a collection of my poems and songs.

It will be available to stream on this website and youtube in September 2017. More updates and stills to come.

Vanity Project Stills Gallery

I’m still working on Vanity Project, mixing the audio with the dream that all distortion may be intentional.

However, if you visit the Vanity Project page, you’ll see the start of a stills gallery of what the visual side is going to look like. I hope to add more stills over the next couple of months.
