Fraya Thomsen is excited to release a new film made to music on Friday 14th of January.
Director Eleanor Mortimer was inspired by Phrenetikos to make an accompanying film. Fraya met Eleanor when studying at the National Film and Television School where they struck up a collaborative bond.
In this textural exploration, Eleanor and Fraya explored their feelings relating to ‘belonging’ in 2020’s Britain. In a deviation from their usual process, Eleanor was compelled to create a visual response to my EP ‘Phrenetikos’.
The film was born out of a shared fascination with what it means to ‘belong’ in a constantly-shifting world, and how to find community and overcome loneliness. Watch it below.
Footloose will be available on Vimeo and Youtube.
Fraya Thomsen is a composer and harp player whose foundations began with the traditional music of Scotland. From an early age she was attracted by the raw emotional quality embodied by the Scottish musicians around her. She aims to draw on this in her approach to composition. With an MA in Composing for Film and TV from the National Film and Television School, a BA (Hons) in Scottish Music from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and a PGDE in Primary Teaching under her belt, Fraya’s diverse interests are reflected in her body of work.
