The song featured in the film is by the talented Dominique Tipper. Dominique’s shout out:
It’s true, we may be a bit bias, but we absolutely LOVE this film. It reminds us of the magical space we are transported into during our Silent Storm events – a place which connects us all to join in on the experience of musical connection. Yet the paradoxical connection between those with headphones and those without exemplifies the immense dichotomy that exists. Needless to reiterate, we’re in LOVE with this piece. Let’s vote “Silent Disco” by DSTRKT 13 to the top!
