In G major/In G minus

Mariateresa Sartori2013-01-01/2013-01-01



53 seconds of images taken by Heimat by Edgar Reitz alternately accompanied by a piece of music in G major and a piece of music in G minor. The images do not change, only the music changes. It is a work on the pervasive power of music, on how much this influences not only our feelings but also our visual perception: we need to deform the image in order to adapt it to the rhythm and the progress of what we are listening to. On a conscious level, the sensation that the image captures all our attention and all our senses prevails, in reality, and in spite of ourselves, music prevails and dictates tyrannically the sensations, feelings, perceptions, shaping and diverting our thoughts. It is an exemplary work that quotes great examples: from the music Vivaldi and Mozart, for the images Heimat by Edgar Reitz.
