for Visual Music Artists, Writers, and Venues
Another film with music magnificently interpreted by Paola Erdas. The level of sophistication of her playing (and of this composition by Antonio de Cabezón) feeds my soul.
Attempting to make visible what Paola's playing evokes in me is very demanding. One needs to navigate that sensitive and elusive space that can exist between being "too close to" and "too far from" the music.
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...
The previous films, "La rosa enflorece," "Pavana glosada," "Diferencias" and "La Folia" (with Paola's "Quadro Janas" ensemble), are also available here on Vimeo.
The music, "Romance 'Para Quien Crie Yo Cabellos'," is a composition by Antonio de Cabezón (Spain, 1510-1566).
It is available on Paola Erdas' CD "CABEZÓN, LA TECLA DE L'ALMA" (ARCANA A 357)
