South African film producer, Mark Wilby, produced this DVD in 2006 (Climax Films) about the artist Helen Martins, her Owl House, and how it inspired musical homages by composer/flutist Tessa Brinckman and composer D’Arcy Reynolds.
The DVD includes Tessa Brinckman’s composition Glass Sky (by Tessa Brinckman & East West Continuo) from the North Pacifc Music release Glass Sky. Cloven Dreams, originally commissioned by Tessa Brinckman from D’Arcy Reynolds for the album Glass Sky, is included here in a string quartet version, performed by Sontonga Quartet.
Inner Landscape has extraordinary footage of the Owl House’s sculptural art, located in the semi-arid Karoo desert. The intriguing story of Helen Martins is included in a seven-minute capsule chapter, essentially a preview of Wilby’s complete documentary story of Martins, This Is My World.
