Clip From Documentary Exuma Featuring Some Of My Music

Fish Personalities

Here’s a short clip from a new documentary film by Colin Ruggiero called Exuma that features some of my music. The film features some stunning underwater and time lapse photography:

“The Exumas are a string of small islands in the Bahamas. “Exuma” is the first film to highlight the beauty of these remote “out islands.” The film is a view into this surreal world of sand, sky and water through the eyes and thoughts of a young woman who lives there. Underwater and time-lapse imagery are used to show a side of the Exumas that few people, even those lucky enough to have visited, have ever seen.”

Trailer For Documentary Film Exuma Featuring My Music

Here’s a trailer for a new documentary film by Colin Ruggiero called Exuma which features some of my music. As you can see from the trailer, the film features some beautiful underwater photography and time lapse footage all shot in HD:

“Prepare to hold your breath and dive into a thousand shades of blue on an exploration of the Exuma Cays – a tiny string of pearls tucked away in the middle of the 3,000 other islands that make up the Bahamas.  Shot entirely in HD, the film uses innovative underwater and time-lapse photography to capture the surreal beauty of the Exumas through the eyes of a young woman who lives there. Through Susanna’s eyes, we are given a window into a world few people have ever seen. Welcome to Exuma.”

PressPausePlay Documentary


If you’re at all interested in how music, film, books and art are created and consumed (and have an hour and a half to spare) I really recommend watching this excellent documentary PressPausePlay from House Of Radon; it’s nothing to do with me but I found it a fascinating watch!

Some great interviews with Seth Godin, Bill Drummond, Hank Shocklee, Moby and many more. You can actually download the film completely for free directly from the filmmakers’ website www.presspauseplay.com and then donate whatever amount  you feel you should (and if you enjoy it, I urge you do).
