The Wire

The world's greatest print and online music magazine. Independent since 1982


See an exclusive film by Graham Dolphin originally shown at an exhibition in Copenhagen in 2009. Dolphin's Inner Sleeve article is featured in The Wire 311.

In The Pines uses footage from the only known film of Leadbelly (Three Songs). To this Graham has added audio from a version of In The Pines by Leadbelly. The footage and audio are repeated and layered with each film starting a fraction of a second apart. It was made for an exhibition called In The Pines, David Risley Gallery, Copenhagen earlier this year. This has been its only showing to date.
