LACHEN VERLERNT

Documentary, Music

A visual interpretation of Salonen's violin concerto. Power cables, reminiscent of the violin's strings, playfully stretch and expand. Inside, a turbulent and chaotic world of electric currents make their way to our homes, secretly carrying charged magnetic energy. Images of a cityscape at night appear, blurred and shaken. The lines become alive, trembling in the dark, pulsating to the rhythm and the speed.
