An interrogation of the City streets and the people who pass through them, Surface Passing was a collaborative project by composer Galina Juritz, sound artist Kurt Human and filmmaker Roger Young. It premiered in March 2015 at Golden Acre centre as part of the Infecting the City Festival in Cape Town.

"Music holds undisputed power in its intersection with film: it can be used to manipulate feeling, anticipate unease, hurry narrative, lend gravitas, distort and re-contextualise, or amplify the existing. In the tradition of the silent film with live orchestra, Surface Passing combines film, sound design and a small ensemble of musicians playing live 'score' to the simultaneous filming of the action that unfolds around them."
