Hidden Elephant

I'd never thought of a turkey baster or a vacuum cleaner hose as musical instruments until I saw the Robert Minden Duo's performance of "Hidden Elephant". Using an incredibly imaginative mix of words, song and "found sounds" the duo told the true story of two circus elephants who were separated for years and were later reunited in a sanctuary.

I recently had the privilege of working with the duo as they composed and performed the soundtrack of my newest film - "Rethink Happiness". In exchange, I made them these drawings!
