Clearcut Sound at Glastonbury 2019

by Clearcut Sound

We were honoured and thrilled to have not one, but two pieces of recent work broadcast on the legendary Pyramid stage at Glastonbury this year.

On Friday afternoon the magnificent ‘A Whale’s Tale’ was played on the big screens and perfectly highlighted the magnitude of the problem with plastic in our oceans and the plight of its wildlife.

The second to be aired in front of a packed crowd, also on the Pyramid stage, was a three minute film for the BBC showcasing the amazing footage captured by the many and varying wildlife documentaries fronted by Sir David Attenborough. Here you can watch the last minute of the film followed by some mesmerising sub-aquatic soundscapes – before Sir David himself takes centre stage.

Both films were part of Glastonbury’s drive to eliminate plastic from the festival and spread the message that the natural world could be on the brink of destruction as a result of humankind’s behaviour.

We were so privileged to work with both Turner Broadcasting and the BBC respectively to bring their beautiful films to life for enthralled audiences at the most iconic festival in the world.
