Relentless (Bauhaus Dance No.13). 
Composed and performed by Guildhall Saxophones (Aidan May, Charlotte Arthur, Ricardo Pires, Josh Brown and George Shrapnell.) Piano/Bass/Mixing by John Harle. 
Art Direction by Iain Herdman. 
Video by Tom Gimson.
The artworks chosen for each of the five sections of the video mirrors the geometry of the music, and were inspired by the work of Josef Albers (1888-1976,) a celebrated teacher at The Bauhaus art school between 1925 and 1933. 
The video has been intentionally produced in the form of early avant-garde cinema that would have been known to Albers at The Bauhaus through the work of Hans Richter, Viking Eggerling and Ludwig Hirschfeld-Mack. Many of these film-makers works had musical titles such as Symphonie Diagonale, Colour Sonatina, Rhythmus 21 and the Jean Cocteau/Hans Richter film A Chess Sonata.
