Untitled Loop #1


This is the first work from series of two, and a collaboration between the filmmaker and the composer. The work suggests balance and equality between audio and visual.

The film depicts a maidservant, sitting next to a bird in a cage. The film’s point of view is from the eye of a viewer looking through a keyhole: the spectator also watches the scene from the standpoint of the absentee viewer.
The point of view, the cage, and the idea of being watched correspond with motifs of the Panopticon designed by Jeremy Bentham (1787) and described by Michel Foucault.

The music composition, for piano and electronics, consists of different listening points: that of the bird in the cage’s atmosphere, that of the woman, and that of the unseen viewer.
