Out of the Earth
Synopsis: Through workshops and conversations over several months, Leo & Hyde composed 'Out of the Earth'. Inspired by the ideas of people who live and work in St Helens Borough, this original song dreams of a 'solarpunk' future - one that is climate conscious, positive and connected to our heritage in the earth.
Out of the Earth features VR painting from Rosie Summers, singing solos from Katie Hughes & Phil Campbell, and a virtual community choir of over 100 adults and children from across St Helens Borough, who contributed their voices to this project!
