North of the west, filmed with artist/cinematographer Padraig Cunningham at Mullaghmore Peninsula, County Sligo, acts as means of structuring an allegorical parallel between the sea and Garry’s paradoxical childhood relationship with the Christian faith – both powerful, immense, beautiful and potentially terrifying elements that surround the island of Ireland.
The soundtrack for the film, played on vinyl record, comes from another of Garry’s collaborative works directly engaging with the sea. Titled Drift, the record is the outcome of a musical performance, film and recording project that took place in Detroit, Michigan and Horseshoe Bay, Sherkin Island, off the coast of West Cork. This performance incorporated Aeolian harps, a brass section and a saxophone player.
