This project celebrates the Polish father of experimental and electronic music and one of the main founders of the Polish Radio Experimental Studio, Eugeniusz Rudnik.
The pretext for the project is the release of the documentary film 15 Corners of the World, written and directed by Zuzanna Solakiewicz. The documentary received the Best Film award at the Locarno Film Festival last year (2014) and translates the world of Rudnik’s sounds into a visual interpretation of the sensual and emotional perception of music. The director says:
"The film is an attempt to hear the music of Eugeniusz Rudnik with your eyes. I have made a film that gives priority to the sound more than to the picture – a film that gives interpretation to the music in order to capture it in pictures – to show sound."
Cast: Weronika Pelczyńska, Anna Wojnarowska, Romuald Krężel, Grzegorz Sowa
Due to unforeseen circumstances, Eugeniusz Rudnik will not be present at the event. He has, however, kindly made a personal selection of his own compositions, including his piece written for Arne Nordheim, to be played back on a vintage Lyrec reel-to-reel tape recorder gifted to the artist by Nordheim himself. This music will played after the screening and will last approximately 40 minutes.
Organised in partnership with The Wire and Requiem Records.
The screening is part of the 13th KINOTEKA Polish Film festival. See the full programme.
