Waiting; (2019) Oliver Farrow was composer and sound designer. He worked with the artist Catherine Baker for a film about patients and families waiting with illness.

How the sound can both elevate the experience of viewing the content and help to contextualize it was a significant part of his brief. Full 10 min version available upon request.
