Les Paraparapluies

SD Video, PAL. colour, stereo, 5‘02‘‘, 2009

Based on the film „Les parapluies de Cherbourg“ by Jacques Demy (1964) an audiovisual composition evolved that reduces the narrative elements of the original movie by turning short sequences into transformative loops. As all dialogues in the original http://deutsche-edpharm.com were sung, the repetitions create melodic rhythms. In synchronized beats, the sampling of the sound goes along with the visual rhythm of the composition. The actors look like virtual singing sculptures and the grammar of the movie can be examined.
