Teacup – Multi-modal DVD
Teacup DVD – This 40 minute DVD features music, artwork and animations by Matt Ottley, along with text and lyrics by Rebecca Young.
The music for Teacup is scored for a chamber orchestra (piano, violin, cello, double bass, electric organ, pre-recorded natural sounds, a Baroque recorder quartet, two singers and a narrator). The accompanying images, both still and animated, are based on the oil paintings in the book. The whole is a dynamic, multi artistic experience that further explores the themes of love, grief, fear, awe and great joy that are expressed in the book. At times the music is tranquil, poignant and reflective, at other times wild and exuberant.
