Is probably inevitable that Laurel Halo, one of the most inventive female artists working today, should move into film scores. And so she has with her forthcoming release, providing the soundtrack to the 2018 essay film Possessed – by artist collective Metahaven and Rob Schröder, produced by Dutch Mountain Film. The film was nominated for the IFFR Tiger award and the CPH:Dox New Vision Award in 2018.
From it she’s shared a track, Hyphae. It’s beautiful but ambient electronica, underpinned by these gentle chords that echo and increase in intensity. All around it are sounds and, as it unfurls, bleeps and machine noises. That it remains so intensely beautiful is testament in itself to Halo’s brilliance.
