Third Year Portfolio Piece The 100% of Egon

Sound Montages & Score by Edwin Hind (Concrete and Green) 2019

Sonically my aim was to create an atmospheric, futuristic, dystopian Aqua world’

The 100% of Egon is a 2D-animated short film warning of a possible fate for mankind. It presents a future where the planet Earth is completely flooded with water and the only real legacy of humanity are the swathes of garbage – large as countries – which float in the now infinite ocean. The only survivor is a Silicon Valley billionaire who has  made himself near-immortal through “tech-innovation”, an innovation that saw a generation of the world’s youth enslaved to become blood fuel solely to extend the lifespan of one man.  Egon, the near-immortal, lives his life in solitude where he signals to the universe for someone to come save him from the now wretched Earth – forever slave to his routine of constant rejuvenation.

 ‘What If’

This video is  a short extract I created to publicise Concrete and Green recent performances for UAL graduation shows. This sound montage is an example of how I apply the  creative use of field recording in my compositional process. To capture this environment I used a wide range of recording techniques and microphones to capture different sound sources. This piece was composed after a visit to Dungeness on a field recording week. The concept explores the idea of, ‘What if?’ there was a nuclear disaster in Dungeness.

The finished piece includes interviews with local people who live in the area and interviews with people who have visited Dungeness. This was also the first piece I composed which I felt had the potential to be performed as a site-specific piece, which I felt reflected the aesthetic of Concrete and Green.
