03 Oct Last day – first day.
For Atlas Eclipticalis, played by the New York Philharmonic, Bernstein conducting, I gathered all that electronic equipment to electrify the whole orchestra and to produce a situation that had never been heard before. Eighty-six instruments amplified and transformed and filtered to the public. What did the musicians do? Tear their microphones off the things and stamp on them in fury. And then they said, quite pleased with themselves, “Come back in ten years. Maybe we´ll take you seriously!”
John Cage 1970
I want to say THANK YOU to all the people that joined the kickstarter campaign and supported our project! Although we didn’t quite succeed in the jungle of attention-grabbing it was a really great experience and we will finish the film anyway!
Meet us at the premiere at the In Edit film festival in Barcelona at the third of November and celebrate with Francesco Tristano and me!
I think I´m off now to listen to some birds.
