“Andreas Rochholl’s film is saturated with the music of pioneering American composer Morton Feldman. Though Feldman passed away in 1987, his work continues to inspire new experiments. Rochholl juxtaposes Feldman’s postmodern compositions with seemingly random scenes, some unspectacular, others strange. Well-versed in music and film techniques, director Rochholl ably uses both to pay a synchronous homage to Feldman’s creative work.”

Music Film by Andreas Rochholl
 
A kangaroo spontaneously leaving its job, a kitchen in crackling tension, a cellist meditating in view of a backyard graffiti, a Violine fancier searching the extraordinary, a composer adoring patterns, patterns, patterns…
 
“A lighthearted and clever spectacle constructed around the chamber music work by Morton Feldman.” 
(Int. Film Festival Rotterdam)
