“This record blends sad and happy, light and dark, past and future. It’s so much fun revisiting and re-contextualising your own music. I only planned to make a couple of remixes but I ended up with seven! There are audio easter eggs in there dating all the way back to the first album when I didn’t know what I was doing. It’s like a big screwed up journey through the history of HFS.”
UNDER THE HAUNTED MOON
Christopher Bingham has signed on to score the upcoming animated short Under the Haunted Moon by Brian Firenzi (5 Second Films, Dude Bro Party Massacre, VGHS). Based on Brian’s original short story, it will be a darkly comedic and unsettling ghost story. The soundtrack will be suitably uneasy, blending electronic and organic elements, taking sounds that should be comforting or nostalgic and using them against us. You can support the project on Kickstarter.
I AM GOING UP COME WITH ME
“I Am Going Up is the album I’ve been trying to make since I was 18 but didn’t have the experience to pull off. I worked with some amazing people, I learned so much about production, and I wrote songs that mean a great deal to me. It’s about growing up and letting go of hate and figuring out what you want to do and what art is in the post-internet age.”
During the run of PBFB 2019, a two-month mini-series, fans of the time-travelling vlog raised over £15,000 to create badges, t-shirts, and fund a full-length sequel to the original. You can learn more about this project on the Past Bing Future Bing website, and stream all episodes of the mini-series on YouTube.
In 2018 Christopher Bingham was approached by Orange Skies Theatre and director Daisy Minto to score their one-hour drama In Addition. The album version of the score was released under his solo instrumental moniker Dreaming Pills. A moody soundscape of strings and digital intrusions created in close collaboration with the cast and director, S.P.I.K.E.S. embodies the play’s themes of grief, wellbeing, and technological surveillance.
