Grasscut are composer/producer/vocalist/musician Andrew Phillips and manager/musician/writer Marcus O’Dair. They have released three acclaimed albums, and have a particular interest in landscape and film. For this project they will be collaborating with Dan Vernon, a BAFTA-winning documentary filmmaker, to create a new impressionistic film with an original score.

The new work will be launched early in 2018 with a special screening event, details to follow.
