Witness the sudden return of More Ghost Than Man, plummeting from one abyss to another, sonically blazing like a charred stone upon reentry. The filmmaker, Terry Grant, has woven dark, compelling mystery into the short film UNVOID. The sound designer, More Ghost Than Man, has rewound these images to inspire the six compositions presented here. The result is an unholy alliance worth deciphering on audio speakers and video screens.
What is the UNVOID, after all? Musically the songs gyrate from sublime stomps reminiscent of MGtM's acclaimed album The Worlds We Made There to massive drones of sinister bass and fiery buzz. Choose your poison, but remain hesitant as you tip-toe through the UNVOID.
What will the first moments be like for the lone creation of the new beginning? Blind to the world, no words to speak. Only the scars of a life reborn.
The gods destroy and create again, with abandon. No bang, no ceremony, no great symphony.
Just one voice, crying out ... to the UNVOID.
UNVOID is a sci-fi/horror short in which the forces at play have decided to dismantle and rebuild the universe.
Planets, people, life as we know it — everything — wiped clean and remade again.
An eight-minute rumination on the meaning of existence in a shapeless world and the potential for horror contained within.
Written and directed by Terry Grant, with music and sound by More Ghost Than Man.
