Silent Music

A film by

Adib Ghorbani

Silent Music is a collection of four short films showing an artist who is trying to make a film about a prison massacre. Silent Music depicts artist suppression and censorship by the combination of surreal and real sonic/visual elements. Silence is the principal theme that appears musically, theatrically, and conceptually. The primary musical instrument used is a small hand-worn motion sensor that tracks the movements of the performer, and creates the required sounds in real-time as well as playing the grand piano remotely.
