Coast To Coast: Malojian
Archive based audiovisual collaboration
In celebration of Northern Ireland’s coastal life - and as part of the BFI's Britain on Film: Coast and Sea project - Malojian's Stevie Scullion was asked to research, compose, record and produce a musical response to the content of the Northern Ireland Screen Digital Film Archive.
Working with filmmaker Colm Laverty, the result was a series of live performances and inspired music videos - one for each track on the album, Let Your Weirdness Carry You Home.
“A few months ago Northern Ireland Screen contacted me to see if I'd be interested in playing a gig in a coastal location, with coastal themed visuals from their Digital Film Archive to be used as a backdrop. This sounded very cool to me and, the more I thought about it, I began to get really into the idea of recording some new material to go alongside it.
So, I started recording demos at home with the intention of taking them to a proper studio at some stage and turning them into an album. Lo and behold, like an ugly duckling or something, they grew and took on a life of their own and have taken me on the most incredible musical journey I've been on yet. From recording in a lighthouse to collaborating with some of my favourite musicians ever, they've become my next album. It's called Let Your Weirdness Carry You Home and features Joey Waronker (Beck, R.E.M., Atoms For Peace, Roger Waters), Gerry Love (Teenage Fanclub), Jon Thorne (Yorkston/Thorne/Khan, Lamb) and more...' - Stevie Scullion
