A one-hour work for film, soundtrack and saxophonist in which Wilson’s music interacts with a new film (recorded in Belfast) by acclaimed Irish artist Johnnie Lawson. Images of familiar places or types of places are presented in surprising ways, de- and re-contextualized by the evocative soundtrack and imaginative score for saxophonist Cathal Roche.

Urban Mysteries allows audiences to experience the filmed scenes as dramatic instead of simply everyday, mysterious rather than familiar. The combination of elements allows spectators to create their own narratives, whether emotional, ecological, sociological or historical, producing one of the most engaging types of artwork, where the spectator is fundamentally involved in its interpretation.

Urban Mysteries was commissioned by the Belfast Film Festival with funds from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland.
