Counterpoint is a series of moving image works by filmmaker Antony Barkworth-Knight in collaboration with Manchester based musicians Graham Massey, Olivia Moore, Ríoghnach Connolly and John Ellis.
In each piece the musicians were interviewed and asked to improvise music in response to an original piece of animation. The results are tapestries of video, animation, interview, music and sound that create an intimate insight into the artists involved.
The project premiered at manchester jazz festival in 2016 with screenings at HOME cinemas and in the mjf film hut in the festival arena on Albert square. Since, the films have featured as part of: Lightwaves, Salford, Filmed Up, HOME, Macnhester; Visions of the Future, Manchester.
