Scott Bartlett

Sound of One (1976) 16mm, color, 11.00 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Dance

Financed by the National Endowment of the Arts. Prior to filming the SOUND OF ONE, Bartlett studied dance as a student enrolled at the Inner Research Institute. His teacher was Martin Inn. This student-teacher relationship evolved into a collaboration in which Barlett and Inn scripted a summer workshop course entitled The Application of T'si Chi Ch'uan to the Art of Filmmaking. SOUND OF ONE is the fruit of that program, a melding of the two disciplines. SOUND OF ONE records the short form of the T'ai Chi dance as a solo figure moves through changing landscapes -- oceanside to forest to volcano peak -- to represent the five elements: water, wood, fire, air and metal.
