for Visual Music Artists, Writers, and Venues
Another film with music magnificently interpreted by Paola Erdas.
The previous ones, "Diferencias" and "La Folia" (with Paola's "Quadro Janas" ensemble), are also available here on Vimeo.
Attempting to make visible what Paola's playing evokes in me. Navigating that sensitive and elusive space between being "too close to" and "too far from" the music is very demanding. If Norman McLaren said that "animation is what happens between the frames," Visual Music is likely what happens between the music and the images, and that dialogue is often overwhelmed either by the music, or the images...
Talking about images, these are seriously hurt by the Vimeo conversion, the same applies to all my other pieces available here.
The music, "Pavana glosada," is by António de Cabezón.
Available on Paola Erdas' CD "CABEZÓN, LA TECLA DE L'ALMA" (ARCANA A 357)
