"Mugenkei" is a film done with Wilfried Jentzsch's "Dream of B" composition.
That music is like a Tsunami. It invades the listener in an inescapable way. But it also brings about a release, as if, after that powerful invasion, one were left cleansed, amazed to (still) be alive.
The film attempts to make that experience visible, without any anecdotal means. It explores the “poetic” space that can/should exist "between" images and sound, a space that can be flattened/crushed so easily, or rendered irrelevant (if stretched out too much).
Stills and a web version of "Mugenkei" are available here
