The Woodwind is a story about a father and his daughter. It is set in an ancient forest where musical instruments grow in the trees, over generations.
The father, steadfast and set in his ways, is the current custodian of the forest, handing the skills down to his daughter. The daughter, playful, creative and free-spirited, resists, improvises and experiments – against her father’s will.
The story is told over four seasons: summer, autumn, winter and spring. Each season is separated by around 10 years, shining a spotlight on the breakdown and eventual reconciliation in their relationship.
The story is told without dialogue, with originally composed music inspired by Norwegian folk songs, and a soundscape which evokes the sound of a Norwegian forest throughout the year.
