Overture (1986) 16mm, black and white, 7.30 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Music

A meditation on the interwoven nature of music, perception and experience. Images are built from superimposing exposures in the camera to form a kind of dream narrative which has its own logic. "OVERTURE recalls old silent movies with its piano playing accompanist on screen (there's a stunning sequence with lamps that rivals David Byrne's lamp dance in 'Stop Making Sense' for most lyrical use of a house lamp)." -- Katherine Dieckmann, Village Voice Funded by the New York State Council on the Arts.
