about

Bella concerns the unsolved mystery of Hagley Woods.
Adapted by Carnie Features from the newspaper reports of W. Byford ''Quaestor'' Jones; BELLA IN THE WYCH ELM is a phantasmagoria of ghosts, spies, skeletons and the dark heart of the rural Midlands countryside. A mood piece chronicling the fateful day of the discovery of an unidentified skeleton in Hagley Wood to the folkloric theories that followed and of the lasting legacy today. This film will awash you with a ghostly kaleidoscope encapsulating a most celebrated strain of spooky Midlands heritage.This score is both ecclectic & ethereal, it fits like a glove to all that occurs, ebbing with ectoplasmic beauty.
~~
NOTES : PHYSICAL COPIES ARE LIMITED AND WILL BE ON SALE SOON!
~~
This original score for Bella In The Wych Elm accompanies the silent cut of the film which appears on the DVD release alongside another separate score by Deathly Pale Party.

———————————
I wove a strand of this my tale
Clandestine secret of mine
Snared in cobwebbed whispered book-spines
Sending shivers down the aeons
Cast into history unnamed or truly known
Encased within knotted tangles
-
This hair: a cruel unkempt reminder of the outside of this crucible..
untamed Upon this mortal frame remains
Where are the small mercies of the days?
-
Sad to be immortalized by many a theory
A mystery
A circumstance
A tale
For many stories are unveiled
Unsexed from my destiny or persona
That once carved my character I remain
Something more
But somehow less

I?
