The View From Here #16: Nicholas Allbrook

Monday 18th July / posted by Chris Wheeldon

RTRFM’s award-nominated short film series The View From Here returns for its second season with Episode 16, featuring the exquisite song writing of Nicholas Allbrook filmed in the belly of the Pleasure Craft as part of Fringe World 2016.

We place the Pond front man in to a land locked recycled boat, built by local WA artist A Good Looking Man which was situated as a pop up venue during Perth’s Fringe World 2016. Nicholas settles himself in for a short set of wonderfully crafted songs, telling us stories of loss, love and the wonders of living in Western Australia.

The juxtaposition of placing a larger then life musician into a quiet, subdued and wonderfully crafted art work gives us a view into the world of Western Australian art both musical and visual. Nicholas’s vocals sore and his treble laden guitar twangs throughout the boat in a perfectly crafted set of songs from his most recent release Pure Gardiya.
