Burning Pool is a 24-minute film capturing Sheffield as a post-industrial city in transition – a lot of the featured buildings and landscapes are now gone or radically altered. It was created as a response to the DIY ethic of the local music scene between 1979-81 and also explores the hauntological notion of “future ghosts”.
Ron Wright is the founder member of 80s Sheffield band Hula and senior lecturer in Sound Recording and Design for Film & Media Production. He has since worked mainly as a sound practitioner for broadcast, screen and gallery on various award winning indie and experimental films, installations and live performances.
Neil Webb is an artist based in Sheffield and senior lecturer in Sound Design. Neil’s practice includes, film, performance, curation, installation and recorded releases.
