What is that humming, buzzing, splashing in the film? Ever since films were first shown in 1895, they have been accompanied by sounds and music. Today, sounds, voices, music and noises are put together on a soundtrack. Before we experiment with sounds, language and noises ourselves, inventing ideas for a soundtrack for DWIGHTIANA by Marie Menken and performing live, we will discover what can be seen and heard in five short films: DARLINGTONIA II leads us into the depths of the world of plants, in FIREHOUSE shadows and lights swirl to pulsating rhythms. LANTOUY immerses us in a magical world of images and sounds. In the documentary footage of LANGS DEN BENEDENLOOP DER TJI-LIWONG, we travel along a river in Indonesia and in WEEKEND we listen to the sounds of a morning. (em)
