Big Cinema, Small Cinema #30: What’s ringing, scratching, rustling there in the film?

FADENSPIELE III, 2013

Since the first time films were shown in 1895, they were accompanied by sounds and music. Both then and now, noises, music, and sounds were combined. Before we make our own sound experiments and create a soundtrack to LE CHAUDRON INFERNAL (Georges Méliès, France 1903) together and play it live, we discover what can be seen and heard in six short films: we walk through a corn field in SUSAN THROUGH CORN (Kathleen Laughlin, USA 1985) and experience Rosalie in love and dancing in ROSALIE DANSEUSE (Romeo Bosetti, France 1911). FADENSPIELE III plays with mountains, lines, and sounds (Detel Aurand, Ute Aurand, Germany 2013). ZWEIGROSCHENZAUBER (Hans Richter, Germany 1930) presents us an eddy of images, sounds, and words, MOTHLIGHT (Stan Brakhage, USA 1963) moths in the light, and LE CHAUDRON INFERNAL miraculous transformations. (em) From 8 years upwards (20.10.)
