In Pursuit of Silence – Premiere at CPH:DOX

IPOS Premiere

In Pursuit of Silence – a new documentary by Patrick Shen about our relationship with silence, sound, and the impact of noise – premieres at CPH:DOX (Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival). As an ode to the American maverick-composer, John Cage, who is a prominent figure in the film, the score heavily features my take on the prepared piano. Unique sounds were meticulously crafted by placing objects between and over the piano strings: rubber earplugs, chopsticks, foam brushes, metal wires, sponges, felt, screws, pvc pipes, ebows, guitar slides, wooden dowels, various whachamacallits, and my favorite sound from the project: an electric toothbrush vibrating against the strings! The film is bound to make its journey around the world this coming year, so be on the lookout. An album of the score is also in the works. Stay tuned!
