Collective Hum is one of four New Commissions in the ICO’s 2020 national film tour, Second Sight.

A short film exploring the polyphony of collectivity in the desires, motivations and stories that foreground the histories and present(s) of Black British sound. Collective Hum documents a collective in practice through the operation of B.O.S.S using multiple narration, overlapping voices and the sound of group interviews, meetings and events to create a polyphonic score to soundtrack images of the ‘collective bodies, kinaesthetic experience and gestural language’ of sound system culture.

About the Second Sight New Commissions

In association with LUX, the ICO presents four new moving image commissions from artists Ayo Akingbade, B.O.S.S. Collective, Morgan Quaintance and Rehana Zaman. These films are part of the ICO’s 2020 national film tour Second Sight which explores the legacy, methods, aesthetic strategies and histories of the UK Black Film Workshop Movement which developed throughout the 1980s. The films are bookable as a 73 minute programme or individually.
