American Interior (2014) – Gruff Rhys and Dylan Goch.

American-Interior

Travelogues and musicians have a natural affiliation; for the latter’s art, travelling will always be a prerogative with touring being an essential part of their creative psyche in order to perform and promote their music.  This is not, however, the main link between the subject of Dylan Goch’s American Interior (2014) and its presenter, Gruff Rhys.  Rhys is the frontman of the Welsh band, Super…

Sounds of The Birds (1963) – Alfred Hitchcock.

Few directors have had their relationship with music analysed as much as Alfred Hitchcock.  His natural ability to select the right composer to almost brand his films aurally has often meant that the musical scores have become synonymous with his filmmaking style even though they have been created by several different composers over the years.  With this context then, Hitchcock’s 1963 film, The…

A Spell To Ward Off The Darkness (2013) - Ben Rivers + Ben Russell.

A Spell To Ward Off The Darkness (2013) – Ben Rivers + Ben Russell.

Ben-Rivers-Ben-Russell_web1

A Musicological Study of Ken Russell’s Composer Films - Part 5 (Dance of the Seven Veils).

A Musicological Study of Ken Russell’s Composer Films – Part 5 (Dance of the Seven Veils).

epwsk

Part 1. Part 2. Part 3. Part 4. 

When approaching a cinematic portrayal of Richard Strauss, Russell is, for the first time in his biographical canon, openly honest about its position within cultural texts.  Dance of the Seven Veilshas a sub-heading that reads “A comic strip in 7 episodes on the life of Richard Strauss” which is the first open admission that this is far from a factual retelling of…
