from the author of Tuxedomoon/Seismic
art school when I lived with a painter, I marvelled at the lost worlds in
each layer of her canvases as she made her paintings ...incrustations of
precious oil, characters, stories, fantasty worlds that would cover each
other like generations from Pompeii. This documentary
is a little like that. Each layer could tell it's own story. Together they
form something specific, but their elements are beautiful too if you like
things in a raw state as I do.
documentary focuses on the creation of the music of "Cabin
in the Sky",
and the relationship of the collaborators. One thing
I was interested in was playing with the change in audio dynamics from room
to room, empty or full, the sonic variations in a song as it moves from
creation to performance. It is, more than anything,
an "ear diary".
final authoring includes optional french subtitles. There is an english transcript
