[silent film, René Clair, France 1924]

live-music: cinéma by Erik Satie [1924], arranged by IzP [2005]


(first performed: oct 05th 2005, Essen / Germany)


ENTR’ACTE shows film, pure film … the lyric possibilities of the cinematographic image just the same as the roguish tricks of Dadaist slapstick. Little paper ships on the roofs of Paris … pure speed and reckless speed … lastly a sorcerer in a coffin … an eternally modern work.


[Scopium / Peter Ellenbruch + IzP, translated by Eric Flesher / USA]
