Using a combination of still photography, archive images, new film, found sound, played instruments, spoken word, mechanical sounds and treated signals; musician John Parish and film maker Gavin Bush create a series of daily products from the historic John Smedley factory at Lea Mills deep in the heart of Derbyshire.

Working on a basis mirrored by their adjacent factory workers, each day  produces a woven piece of music and image that, over  a normal working week,  combines to make one finished product that is displayed by a live performance at The Chocolate Factory in Derby on Saturday April 6th 2012. Packaged versions of the product are then available for sale as a download or DVD thereafter.

None of the ingredients have been pre-prepared, what develops is local produce; made in response to the working surroundings, the history of the Mill and John Smedley’s factory and the location of Lea Bridge and its residents.
