The Hundred In The Hands

It’s Day 1 of MS Dockville Festival 2012. The first bands of the festival just started playing and we absorb their tunes while checking out the festival site which is full of beautifully playful, self-made and walkable arts installations and sculptures. Yet for the shoot with the Brooklyn-based The Hundred In The Hands we leave the festival towards a quiet canal in Hamburg’s Wilhelmsburg neighbourhood. Eleanore – a trained opera singer – and Jason – a New York arts school graduate – set up under a bridge, directly by the water and start into a beautiful, stripped-down version of „SF Summer“ from their new album “Red Night”. Without beats and keyboards the song unfolds a haunting fragility that strangely fits this dark and peaceful setting. Above us the sound of lorries coming from Hamburg’s harbour occasionally disturbs the rural scenery, but Eleanore and Jason are too focused to bother. For a few minutes they create an own little world down there under the bridge, and some passers-by – mostly festival audience – are lucky enough to get a glimpse of it before The Hundred In The Hands evening show.
